Warner Bros. would not confirm Miller's casting, but did say that Jessica Biel, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Hilary Swank, Til Schweiger, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and Zac Efron are locked and loaded for the star-studded flick. "Glee" starlet Lea Michele, "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara and Marshall staple Hector Elizondo are also rumored to be on board for roles.
The film follows a group of New Yorkers who navigate their way through intersecting romantic situations on New Year's Eve. Though the movie is a thematic follow-up to Marshall's previous ensemble flick "Valentine's Day," returning actors Kutcher and Biel will not be reprising their previous roles. The specifics of Miller's character have yet to be revealed.
SJP will be playing the mother of Breslin who relies on her daughter too much for company. Pfeiffer is a frustrated secretary who decides to work on her unfulfilled New Year's resolutions, and Efron would play a bike messenger who crosses paths with her. Swank is the producer of the big Times Square New Year's Eve bash, while Kutcher is a man who hates the big holiday. Berry would play a caterer who runs into a former flame. Last but not least, Biel will play a women looking to be the first to give birth on January 1 to win a cash prize, and De Niro is a dying man she meets in the hospital.
Michele, Efron, Kutcher, Vergara and Elizondo's roles are currently unspecified, but we're placing our bets that Efron and Michele end up as love interests and Kutcher is Berry's former flame. But with just about a month until filming starts, we're expecting quite a few more casting announcements heading our way soon.
"New Year's Eve" is set to be released on December 9, 2011.
