Applegate plays lead in 'Rocker'

12 June 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Christina Applegate has been cast as the female lead opposite Rainn Wilson in The Rocker, which Peter Cattaneo is directing for Fox Atomic. Shawn Levy and Tom McNulty are producing via their 21 Laps Entertainment banner.

Also joining the cast of the music-themed comedy are Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Emma Stone (Superbad), musician-actor Teddy Geiger, Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live), Jane Lynch (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Demetri Martin (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart).

The film centers on a failed, over-the-hill drummer (Wilson) who, 20 years after getting booted out of his now uber-famous band, gets a second chance at fame with a new act, a high school garage band headed by his nephew (Josh Gad).

Applegate plays Wilson's love interest and the mother of the lead guitarist in the garage band.

Ryan Jaffe wrote the original screenplay, while Wallace Wolodarsky and Maya Forbes are penning the most recent draft.

Principal photography is set to begin June 18 in Toronto.

President of production Debbie Liebling is overseeing the project for Atomic. »
