Cobie Smulders (Marvel's The Avengers, How I Met Your Mother) is in negotiations for the female lead in DreamWorks Pictures' Starbuck.

Vince Vaughn stars in this remake of the French-Canadian comedy, portraying a middle-aged man who learns that he has fathered 533 children through sperm donations. When hundreds of these kids request to meet their father, the man must decide whether or not he will reveal his identity. Cobie Smulders will play his pregnant girlfriend. Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt is playing the man's attorney.

Ken Stott, who made the original Starbuck, will direct from his own screenplay. André Rouleau is producing, with shooting scheduled to begin later this year.
