Another day, another casting announcement from the star-studded film adaptation of What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Lionsgate has confirmed that Dennis Quaid will pair up with Brooklyn Decker in the ensemble comedy, for a May-December romance that hits a speed bump when Quaid’s character, Ramsey, learns that Decker is pregnant with twins. In a Duggar family style twist, Ramsey’s son Colin is also expecting his first child, and the competitive Ramsey is determined to one-up his son.

Quaid’s is the latest name added to the film’s roster, but the big screen version of Heidi Murkoff’s pregnancy guide is certainly not hurting for stars. Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, and True Blood‘s dreamy Joe Manganiello have already signed on. Filming is set to begin this month for a scheduled May 11, 2012 release.

    Would it be simpler at this point to just list who ISN’T in this movie?

    How in the heck do they get the budget to pay all these people? Geez

  • Emily

    Why in the world would they hire Quaid? They couldn’t get anyone better his (old) age?

    A 50- year old guy with a 25-year old wife… frickin original!

  • sally

    Why is this being made?

  • Really?

    Sounds like another star-studded crapfest.

  • Ethan

    This sounds like Father of the Bride part 2.

    • Marissa

      I love Dennis Quaid but he can pick some of the cheesiest roles and this sounds like one of them. It’s to much real life scenario. He needs to play what he is a country boy or a cowboy get back to his Texas roots and get his Texas accent back. He’s been in the city way to long.

    Some of these people are way too old to be playing these pregnancy roles. J-Lo, Dennis Quaid. The title should be “What to expect when you are expecting grandkids”!

    John Carpenter’s version reimans brilliant, I watched it agian the other night. This prequel looks to be a PC’d carbon copy of Carpenter’s remake, completely unoriginal. I remember watching the original on TV as a kid and being quite scared as well.As for the Footloose remake. Hollywood telling us how eeeeeeviiiiillllllll and intolerant Christianity can be. I wonder if this version has a fun loving happy go lucky Muslim in it? Because we all know how tolerant the Religion of Peace is. Besides,I don’t think I could last 10 minutes listening to that crappy Boston accent. But hey, at least they kept the Volkswagen Bug!
