'Swingles' scene next for Diaz


Cameron Diaz is looking for a date.

She is in negotiations to topline "Swingles," a romantic comedy being produced by Kevin Misher for Paramount. The search for a suitable onscreen mate is ongoing.

"Swingles" focuses on a man and woman whose respective best friends meet and fall in love, leaving both without a wingman/woman for the first time in their adult lives. Despite their antagonism, the two remaining singles join forces to help each other find romantic partners.

The comedy, with its 21st century "When Harry Met Sally …" vibe, was written by Duncan Birmingham, with additional work by Jeff Roda.

Ben Cosgrove is overseeing the project for the studio.

Misher has "Fighting" hitting theaters April 24 and the Michael Mann-directed "Public Enemies" releasing July 1.

Diaz most recently starred opposite Ashton Kutcher in the Fox comedy "What Happens in Vegas," which grossed $218 million worldwide. She has "Shrek Goes Fourth," "The Box" and "My Sister's Keeper" moving into theaters during the next year. (partialdiff)
