"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker takes over Rachel Weisz's role in comedy flick "Smart People."
Still attached herself to comedy genre, Sarah Jessica Parker has given her agreement to star in "Smart People" replacing Rachel Weisz who originally was billed as a doctor who falls for a professor whose wife's death has turned him into a bitter man.
Together with Dennis Quaid, Thomas Haden Church, Ellen Page, and Ashton Holmes in the cast lineup, Parker thus will come under the direction of Noam Murro who is set to helm from Mark Poirier's script. Filming is scheduled to start on November 6 with Bill Block, Michael Costigan, and Bridget Johnson taking the producers' seats.
Parker, best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in HBO's popular series "Sex and the City", is last seen on the big screen playing opposite Matthew McConaughey in "Failure to Launch." Her upcoming film projects include "Spinning Into Butter", "Slammer", and "A Family Affair."
