Cameron Diaz Is Making A ‘Sex Tape’ With Jason Segel

Cameron Diaz Is Making A 'Sex Tape' With Jason Segel

In the works for what’s coming on two years now, and once mooted for Reese Witherspoon, the raunchy comedy “Sex Tape” — that has had Jason Segel and director Jake Kasdan attached to direct for a while now — has finally landed its leading lady. And it looks like we’re in for a full blown “Bad Teacher” reunion.

Cameron Diaz, who helped turn that comedy into an unexpected smash hit, spawning a TV spinoff starring Ari Graynor (though no word on if it made it past pilot stage), will join Segel in “Sex Tape.” The Kate Angelo-penned story follows a married couple who take a night off from their kids and decide to spice up their lives by making a sex tape. But when they wake up the next morning from their night of amateur porno making, the tape is gone and they have to track it down. It’s a pretty good concept, and both Segel and Diaz certainly had the comedic chemistry down in “Bad Teacher,” even if the movie didn’t always work, so we’re hopeful this’ll work out.

No word yet on when production will begin, but next up for Diaz is the comedy revenge flick “The Other Woman,” which starts lensing soon. [The Wrap]
