Emily Blunt's filmography continues to grow more impressive. With Prada in the theatres Blunt has now joined up with Hanks and Malkovich.
Emily Blunt for The Great Buck Howard
According to THR, Bristol Bay Productions is in negotiations with Emily Blunt to play the female lead in The Great Buck Howard. Tom Hanks, John Malkovich and Colin Hanks star.
Written and directed by Sean McGinly, The Great Buck Howard revolves around a luckless magician and his assistant who struggle to reinvigorate his career. Blunt will play a self-assured publicist hired by Buck Howard (Malkovich) to publicize an event that will put him back on the map.
Blunt, whose breakout comedic performance in The Devil Wears Prada earned critical praise, also starred in the 2004 coming-of-age story My Summer of Love. She can next be seen in Revolution's horror-thriller Wind Chill.
The film began shooting this Monday in Los Angeles with Hanks and Gary Goetzman producing.
