A comedy project that previously languished is on track again after regrouping with a trio of high-profile actresses on board.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell are set to star in the untitled project, which was previously known as “Bad Moms.”
It was originally at Paramount and was meant to star Leslie Mann, with Judd Apatow producing. But THR reports that the project sat idle for a time after Mann and Apatow bailed out.
“STX Entertainment has stepped up to pick up the project, which is now untitled, with Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers behind ‘The Hangover,’ remaining on board to direct,” THR reports. Lucas and Moore have reportedly written the script.
“The story centers on an overachieving mother with a seemingly perfect life whose stress lines are one bad day from cracking,” THR reports. “Fed up, she joins two other overstressed mothers, leading them on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities, which includes going on a wild un-mom-like binge of freedom, fun and self-indulgence.”
