CBS Films announced today that Oscar® and Tony® Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden (Into the Wild, Mystic River) has signed on to co-star in the comedy tentatively titled Get A Job.
Directed by Dylan Kidd (Roger Dodger) from a screenplay by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel, Get A Job is a multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things. Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher (Django Unchained, Contagion) of Double Feature Films are producing.
Harden is set to play Katherine Dunn, a demanding Vice President at an executive placement firm, who runs her division according to her own rules. She joins previously announced cast members Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick, Miles Teller, Nick Braun, Alison Brie, Brandon T. Jackson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Jay Pharoah.
Maria Faillace and Ryan Conroy are overseeing the project for CBS Films. The film began production on March 12th in Los Angeles.
