Another name is attached now to a United Artist project that has just started to make waves in the press, the aptly titled time-travel comedy Hot Tub Time Machine (anyone else wonder what this movie could possibly be about?). Lyndsy Fonseca, who just finished shooting the adaptation of the Mark Millar comic series Kick-Ass opposite Nicholas Cage, joins John Cusack in Vancouver where the film recently began shooting.
Fonseca, probably best known for her role as one of the children on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, will play Jennie, the “one that got away” from John Cusack’s character (who at the moment remains nameless) back in 1987. When Cusack and several of his pals discover that their Jacuzzi is not only a bubbly pool of relaxation, but a time travel device as well. When they accidentally travel back to 1987, Cusack and Jennie are reunited (we know it sounds romantic, but when you actually think about it the situation is pretty creepy… I mean, Cusack’s character is probably, what, like 30-something or 40-something and Jennie will probably be maybe 18 or 19? Sketchy).
In addition to Fonseca and Cusack, this wacky time travel flick also stars Lizzy Caplan, best known for her roles in Cloverfield (as Marlena) and as the dowdy social outcast Janice in Mean Girls, Crispin Glover (Charlie’s Angles, Crime and Punishment), NBC series Kings’ star Sebastian Stan, and may even include Sex Drive’s Charlie McDermott and Rob Corddry (both rumored).
Hot Tub Time Machine is set for release in February 2010. Written by Josh Heald, Steve Pink , who directed the 2006 comedy Accepted, will direct with 34th Street Films, Lakeshore Entertainment, and New Crime Productions all attached to the project.
