The all-singing, all-dancing terrier that is Kristin Chenoweth is in talks to join the cast of The Boy Next Door for director Rob Cohen, according to THR. She’s the second cast member to be announced, following Jennifer Lopez earlier this month.
The film is about a woman (Jennifer Lopez) who’s separated from her husband and becomes attracted to the teenage boy who moves in next door, even though the young new neighbour becomes friends with her son. After briefly striking up a romance with the boy, she breaks it off abruptly, only to realise how obsessed he has become with her. Kristin Chenoweth is playing the mother’s best friend.
Rob Cohen is directing from a screenplay by Barbara Curry. The low-budget movie is due to shoot this autumn.
