As previously reported, LaBute, playwright of the Drama Desk Award-nominated Reasons to Be Pretty, will adapt his play for the screen. The independently financed feature film will be directed by Jennifer Getzinger.
In the upcoming film, Brody will star as a writer who travels cross-country to see his four ex-girlfriends before he gets married. Bell will play Bobbi, an articulate woman he bailed on.
Bell has been seen on Broadway in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Crucible. Her film and television credits include "Veronica Mars," "House of Lies" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," among others. The performer has also signed on for Disney's upcoming animated feature "Frozen," in which she will provide the speaking and singing voice of the lead character.
LaBute's Some Girl(s) premiered in an MCC Theatre production, which opened June 8, 2006, at Off-Broadway's Lucille Lortel Theatre. The play starred "Will & Grace" actor Eric McCormack as well as Fran Drescher, Judy Reyes, Brooke Smith and Maura Tierney. LaBute, Patty West, Chris Schwartz and Andrew Carlberg will produce the film adaptation.
