Weaver and Shawkat Join Helms, Reilly, and Heche in CEDAR RAPIDS

     November 3, 2009


Sigourney Weaver and Alia Shawkat will join Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, and Anne Heche in Miguel Arteta’s upcoming comedy, “Cedar Rapids”.  The movie, written by Phil Johnston and co-developed with Helms, follows “a sad-sack insurance agent who goes to an industry convention to try and save the jobs of his colleagues.”  Weaver, who will next be seen in James Cameron’s “Avatar”, plays Helms’ 7th-grade teacher.  As we previously reported, John C. Reilly plays a family man attending the conference but his character sees it as a chance to bust loose.  No word yet on Shawkat’s role. [Variety]
