John Krasinski wasn’t waiting around by the phone (although I’m sure his
cell was handy at all times) for the Captain America folks to tell him
he’s got the part or not. He’s just booked himself a two-picture gig for the upcoming Something Borrowed, a romantic comedy co-starring Ginnifer Goodwin, for Alcon Pictures. The story centers on a Manhattan attorney (Goodwin), the
consummate good girl, who falls in love with her best friend’s
fiance on her 30th birthday. The project is based on a series of novels by Emily Giffin. Alcon
also picked up rights to the second book, Something Blue, with a
plan to develop a sequel. Luke Greenfield (The Girl Next Door)is directing.
This is somewhat of a rarity in that Krasinski’s planned role will be a supporting character in the first film, then the romantic lead in the sequel should that develop. Filming starts this spring.
