CATEGORIES Movie NewsTwo weeks ago it was announced that two of your favorite stars -- Owen Wilson and Tina Fey -- may soon be sharing the big screen in "Admission." But that's not happening: Wilson has dropped out. However, another one of your favorite celebs may be taking his place.
The LA Times is reporting that Paul Rudd is circling Paul Weitz's ("About A Boy") upcoming drama, "Admission." Fey, who has been attached the the project for some time, is set to play an Ivy League admissions counselor who gets a little too close to her 17-year-old student. Rudd is eying the role of a neighboring teacher who falls for Fey.
Rudd has apparently met with the film's higher ups and is said to be "very interested" in the project. This would continue a nice dramedy streak for the actor whose next projects include "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" and Judd Apatow's "This Is 40."
Filming for "Admission" is slotted to begin in May, when Liz Lemon hangs up her off-brand Snuggie and wraps up another season of "30 Rock."
