Gossip Girls‘ Leighton Meester, Community‘s Gillian Jacobs and Adam Brody are set to star in Life Partners, a comedy that marks the directorial debut of Susanna Fogel. Fogel co-wrote with Joni Lefkowitz. Also in the ensemble are Gabourey Sidibe, Abby Elliott and Beth Dover. Myriad Pictures will handle foreign sales for the film at Cannes. The comedy is about a codependent friendship between two very different girls — type-A Paige (Jacobs) and lesbian slacker Sasha (Meester). Paige has vowed that she won’t get married until Sasha has the same legal right and that works out fine until Paige meets Tim (Brody), a young and charming doctor. As a crucial vote on gay marriage approaches, the threesome struggle with issues of love, friendship, and loyalty.
Jordana Mollick and Brendan Bragg of Black Sheep Management & Productions are producing alongside Riva Marker and Daniela Taplin Lundberg. Daniel Crown will executive produce with Anne O’Shea of Minerva Productions and Peter Touche of Sandia Media. Fogel & Lefkowitz are repped by UTA and Brillstein’s Margaret Riley. Meester is repped by WME and Leverage’s Loch Powell. Brody, Jacobs and Sidibe are repped by UTA. UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global will co-rep domestic rights.
Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester has joined Robert Downey Jr. in The Judge, the Warner Bros. dramedy being directed by David Dobkin.
Meester joins a cast the includes Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dax Shepard and Billy Bob Thornton.
Judge is a co-production between Team Downey and Big Kid Pictures, and a Boston shoot beginning in June is being eyed.
Downey stars as a successful attorney who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral to discover that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. The man sets out to discover the truth, and along the way, reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.
Meester will play a character with whom Downey has a one-night stand and whose later revelations cause quite a bit of headaches for the man.
Judge is Meester’s first major move since wrapping Gossip Girl, which ran for six seasons on the CW. In that time, she appeared in such movies as Date Night, Country Strong, The Oranges and That’s My Boy.
She is repped by WME, Leverage Management and Stone Meyer.
Leighton was seen picking up lunch to go from Hugo’s Restaurant on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
