In some new casting details, Variety reports that The Three Stooges star Will Sasso, Jennifer Baxter, and Kristen Hager (Being Human, I’m Not There) have joined the upcoming romantic feature, The Right Kind of Wrong — formerly known as Sex and Sunsets. Megan Martin is providing the adapted screenplay, which is based off Tim Sandlin‘s novel, while Jeremiah Chechik is set to direct.
The trio of actors have joined the ranks Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Sara Canning, Catherine O’Hara, and Ryan McPartlin on this picture. The film sees Kwanten in the leading role, as a guy “who meets the girl of his dreams on the day she is marrying the perfect man.” Hager will be playing the protag’s first wife, who has made her fame and fortune with a blog entitled ‘Why You Suck’; Baxter and Sasso are to be seen as a married couple, with Canning playing Collette, the desired newlywed; and O’Hara is appearing as the woman’s “eccentric, estranged mother.”
Here’s a little more info on the novel (via Amazon):
“At twenty-nine, Kelly Palamino’s a little off-kilter but settled into his career of professional dishwasher. His big, blond, ex-hippie wife has left him for good.
So it’s with no particular purpose that Kelly positions himself on his porch across the street from an Episcopal church in Jackson, Wyoming, to witness a singular sight: a dark-haired bride in full regalia punting a football over the rectory before turning resolutely to walk down the aisle.
It’s love at first sight for Kelly, and he’ll do absolutely anything and everything to get his girl…”
