Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer deal with “Idiot Brother”


Hollywoodnews.com: A string of hot actresses — Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer and Rashida Jones – are playing opposite Paul Rudd in the upcoming comedy “My Idiot Brother.”

Film, which is expected to roll before the cameras next month in New York, is being directed by Jesse Peretz and produced by Anthony Bregman’s Likely Story and Big Beach’s Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the logline for “Brother” reads:

An idealist (Rudd) dealing with his over-bearing mother, crashes at his three ambitious sisters’ homes to bring truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while wreaking havoc.

Banks, Deschanel and Mortimer will play the sisters. Bank is a single gal whose journalism career is about to take off; Deschanel portrays a flaky bisexual while Mortimer plays a Type A mother who is unaware that her marriage is crumbling. Jones will play the responsible girlfriend.
