THR has learned that Colin Hanks (‘Dexter,’ ‘The House Bunny’) has joined the cast of the Anne Fletcher’s road movie ‘My Mother’s Curse,’ starring Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand.
The dramedy will center on an inventor (Rogen) and his overbearing mom (Streisand), who hit the road together so he can sell his latest invention while also reuniting her with a lost love.
Hanks will play the husband of Rogen’s high school sweetheart, played by Yvonne Strahovski (‘Chuck’). The pair let Rogen and Streisand crash in their house after the son and mother get caught in a blizzard.
Fletcher (‘The Proposal’) will direct from a script by Dan Fogelman (‘Tangled,’ ‘Cars’).
