'Parenthood' Star Joins 'About Last Night' Remake
Bryant steps into the role played by Demi Moore in Ed Zwick's 1986 original. Both films are adapted from David Mamet's play "Sexual Perversity in Chicago."
Joy Bryant is in talks to star in Screen Gems' remake of About Last Night.
The company is making the movie with an all-black cast, headlined by rising star Kevin Hart along with Michael Ealy and Regina King. Bryant is the final piece of the puzzle.
Steve Pink is directing the movie, which is an adaptation of David Mamet’s 1974 play Sexual Perversity in Chicago and a remake of the 1986 Edward Zwick film that starred Rob Lowe and Demi Moore.
Leslye Headland wrote the new script, which concerns a man and woman who enter into a relationship, but their friends get in the way. Bryant will play the Moore role.
Zoe Saldana was the initial choice but passed.
Bryant is one of the stars of NBC’s Parenthood and appears in the Dax Shepard comedy Hit and Run.
