Breckin Meyer (Rat Race), Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), Anne Archer (Short Cuts), Amanda Walsh (Disturbia), and Emma Stone (Superbad) have joined the cast of The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a romantic comedy starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner. Mark Waters (Just Like Heaven, Mean Girls) is directing from the screenplay by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
According to The Hollywood Reporter,
McConaughey plays Connor, a womanizer who attends the wedding of his younger brother (Meyer) and bride (Chabert). There, he's haunted by several old flames, including the bride's best friend (Garner).
Archer plays the mother of the bride, a potential Connor conquest, and Walsh plays the only bridesmaid he hasn't conquered. Stone plays the supernatural Ghost of Girlfriends Past who guides him through his romantic history in this takeoff on Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
Apparently this was originally a Ben Affleck vehicle back in 2003, but the plug was pulled for some reason. We can speculate and say that two of the potential reasons for shutdown were called Gigli and Paycheck, but then again, Daredevil was a moderate hit that year.
Filming begins February 19th in Boston.
