New Regency is assembling quite a cast around Anna Faris for her R-rated comedy What’s Your Number?, Karyn Bosnak's 2008 Black Listed adaptation of her own book 20 Times a Lady, which has had rewrites by Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan, and will be helmed by Mark Mylod (Entourage).
Faris will star as Delilah, a young woman who upon sleeping with her 20th guy realizes that it’s too many and she must have missed her Mr. Right along the way. With the aid of her womanizing next door neighbor, decides to re-visit all her ex-boyfriends in the hopes of finding the man of her dreams.
The planned May shooting schedule will give Chris Evans, who plays the neighbor, plenty of time to finish before heading off to do The First Avenger: Captain America. Matthew Bomer (Chuck, White Collar) has been cast as Faris' dream guy; while Ari Graynor (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist) will be her sister, whose wedding forms the backdrop for some of the story.
Now the casting of Faris' myriad of ex-boyfriends has begun. Andy Samberg (SNL, I Love You Man) is attached to star, while an offer has also been made to Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes).
I love Samberg as a writer/musician, even though I think he was hilarious in Hot Rod, he hasn't wowed me with any of his feature performances. Maybe it's because he always has the same hair, but I don't believe him as an actor sometimes. As far as Quinto, he'd make a great addition to the cast, and it'd be interesting to see him on the big-screen not as Spock.
What do you think of Andy Samberg joining the cast of WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER? Do you think Quinto should sign on?
Here's a description of the book for more story info:
How many men does it take to find true love? Delilah Darling's magic number was supposed to be twenty. She always thought she'd find the perfect guy by the time she'd slept with twenty of them. But when she wakes up naked in her disgusting boss's bed after a drunken night out, she's filled with regret -- and realizes she's hit her self-imposed limit. Unwilling to up her number but unable to imagine a life of celibacy, Delilah does what any girl in her situation would do: she tracks down every man she's ever slept with in a last-ditch effort to make it work with one of them.
