Cobie Smulders certainly got a few new fans earlier this year thanks to The Avengers, and now the How I Met Your Mother actress is heading for a new film role as she’s in negotiations to play the female lead in Starbuck.
Vince Vaughn is set to star in this remake of a French-Canadian comedy about a middle-aged man who learns that he has fathered 533 children through sperm donations. When hundreds of these kids request to meet their father, the man must decide whether or not he will reveal his identity. Cobie Smulders will play his pregnant girlfriend. Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt is also attached to be the man’s attorney.
Ken Stott, who made the original Starbuck, will direct from his own screenplay. Filming will begin later this year. (Source: Variety)
