EmptyJosh Duhamel and Jon Heder have joined the cast of "When in Rome," a romantic comedy starring Kristen Bell that Mark Steven Johnson is directing for Disney.
Anjelica Huston and Dax Shepard also are making the trip to "Rome."
Written by David Diamond and David Weissman, the story centers on a love-starved New York curator (Bell) who steals magical coins from the Trevi Fountain in Rome but soon finds herself in a bizarre situation when she is pursued back to New York by a band of aggressive suitors whose coins she took.
Heder will play a street magician and one of Bell's suitors. Duhamel is the "Rome's" romantic lead. Shepard will play an aspiring model. Huston will play Bell's boss, the curator of the Guggenheim.
Gary Foster, Rikki Bestall and Andrew Panay are producing the movie, which is scheduled to begin shooting in April.
Duhamel ("Transformers") is repped by Gersh and John Carrabino Management.
Heder, repped by CAA and Mosaic Media, next stars in "Mama's Boy," while Shepard, also repped by CAA and Mosaic Media, will be seen in the upcoming "Baby Mama."
Huston is coming off a stint on NBC's "Medium."
