Aubrey Plaza has lined up her next motion picture project…
The 28-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/comedian and Parks and Recreation star has been cast in the ensemble film A Many Splintered Thing.
Directed by Justin Reardon, the film will feature Luke Wilson, Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi.
In the vein of Amelie and (500) Days Of Summer, A Many Splintered Thing tells the story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner while pretending to be a philanthropist. Turns out that she’s engaged to a guy who doesn’t like her going on dates. Challenged by the chase, and egged on by his eclectic friends, he feigns a platonic relationship in order to keep seeing her as he tries to conquer her heart. Grace will play the poser’s best friend.
Earlier this year, Plaza earned a Young Hollywood Award for her breakthrough performance in Safety Not Guaranteed, her first starring role in a major film.
Production on A Many Splintered Thing begins November 3 in Los Angeles.
