Box office bombshell Megan Fox will join Mad Men’s Jon Hamm in Jennifer Westfeldt’s upcoming indie film, Friends With Kids.
The plot follows a number of couples in their thirities, who reflect on the influence having children has on other people’s relationships and resolve to avoid these pitfalls. The comedy revolves around a pair of thirtysomething best friends who, having seen the toll having kids has taken on the couples around them, decide to have a child and then date other people.
“It’s a very literate script and when Jen met with her she thought Megan was spot on,” according to Cinetic Media’s John Sloss.
Westfeldt, who wrote the script, will star and produce. Westfeldt and Adam Scott will play the lead couple. Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig will co-star, which Fox is set to play one of the women Scott’s character begins dating.
Friends With Kids is scheduled for release in April 2011.
