John Krasinski to join Ginnifer Goodwin for Something Borrowed

Chick lit flicks are becoming the rage, it seems, and every where you turn, it seems another celeb is signing on to be in them.

For example, back in February, Empire Online announced rather snarkily that Ginnifer Goodwin (Margene from “Big Love”) would be starring in the adaptation of Emily Giffin‘s novel Something Borrowed. Directed by Luke Greenfield (The Girl Next Door), Goodwin would play Rachel, a well-meaning Manhattan lawyer who “accidentally” sleeps with her best friend Darcy’s fiance after a drunken 30th birthday party and realizes that she’s in love with him.

Now from The Hollywood Reporter comes news that “The Office” star John Krasinski is in talks to join Goodwin as the second male lead, sort of. It’s a little complicated, as Alcon Entertainment has also acquired the rights to the second book Something Blue which follows best friend Darcy’s single mother escapades in London with her writer-friend Ethan.

Except, THR claims that Krasinski would be playing Rachel’s male confidant in the first movie and Darcy’s eventual romantic interest for the second movie and unless there’s a character I’m missing or they tweak the hell out of the second book, I really don’t see how they’re going to pull that off.

Filming will begin this spring.
