Now that CSI: Miami has bee cancelled, Adam Rodriguez has more spare time on his hands, and it seems that after his success in Magic Mike, he’s hoping to fill it with movie roles. He’s now got a new one, as he’s joined the cast of the remake of the Rob Lowe & Demi Moore film About Last Night, which recently started shooting under the direction of Hot Tub Time Machine’s Steve Pink.
The story is being changed and performed with a largely black cast, including Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, Kevin Hart and Regina Hall. Variety says Rodriguez will play the role of Bryant’s former lover and colleague. Leslye Headland’s script follows a Los Angeles couple who decide to move in together only to have the entire situation blow up in their faces and end in a split.
The remake is said to be more closely based on David Mamet’s play “Sexual Perversity in Chicago,” which was also the basis of Ed Zwick’s 1980’s movie, but which became more of an straightforward comedy in the previous film.
