Kasdan to Shoot Sex Tape with Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz
Jake Kasdan, the man who brought you the mediocre distraction Bad Teacher, has been brought in as the helmsman for Sex Tape, the Jason Segel vehicle which was announced last October. Back then Segel’s buddy Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him To The Greek) had been attached to direct, with Reese Witherspoon set to co-star. Stoller has, however, been called away by other projects so Kasdan is in and, if rumour is to be believed, he is bringing Bad Teacher star Cameron Diaz with him.
The plot concerns a married couple who, with the kids away for the evening, decide to make a sex tape which then falls into the wrong hands setting them off on a wild chase to get it back.
