Diaz wears Her Shoes

11.03.2003

Curtis Hanson (8 MILE, LA CONFIDENTIAL) has come aboard to direct Cameron Diaz in the comedy/drama IN HER SHOES, based on the novel by Jennifer Weiner. Diaz has been laying low of late after the disappointing box-office of CHARLIE'S ANGELS 2 and SHOES will be her first feature to film afterwards. Hanson only recently came aboard and that appears to be the spark that got the picture going. The film follows a young, attractive party girl and her frumpy, attorney sister (guess which one Cameron plays...). The party girl gets into one too many parties and winds up sleeping with her sister's boyfriend. Her sister kicks her out of the apartment they share and the girl is forced to pose as a Princeton student, taking up temporary residences on campus, including the library where she finds a love of poetry and art. No casting yet on Diaz's sister in the film. SHOES, from a script by Susannah Grant (ERIN BROCKOVICH), is expected to begin filming this January and shortly thereafter Diaz will co-star alongside Jim Carrey in FUN WITH DICK AND JANE. Carrey is now prepping work on LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS. A role in SHOES could be a departure for Diaz as it lends itself to some dramatic fare. The actress had come under fire for her lack of range and was even supposedly parodied in LOST IN TRANSLATION by Anna Faris (although that actress diplomatically denies any connection).
