Anna Friel Set to Play Bride in Jason Reitman Film

Anna Friel is not letting any moss grow under her feet after ABC's "Pushing Daisies." The actress will take to the big screen with Jesse Eisenberg in "The Wedding", an as-yet-unowned studio romantic comedy that centers on the highs and lows of young love, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eisenberg is slated to play a young man who crashes Friel's wedding, due to his infatuation with her.

"Juno" collaborator Jason Reitman will executive produce, and possibly direct the flick.

Friel will be seen in theaters in the sci-fi comedy adventure "Land of the Lost" next summer. Eisenberg was last seen in "The Hunting Party" with Richard Gere and James Brolin in 2007. He can be seen in "Adventureland" with Kristen Stewart in March 2009.
