Paul Rudd and Tina Fey

With her work behind and in front of the camera on the NBC comedy series "30 Rock" keeping her busy, Tina Fey usually doesn't have much time for film while the show is on its spring break. However, she usually has time for one film here and there like Date Night, Megamind or The Invention of Lying. Now the "Saturday Night Live" star is set to star in an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel Admission. While Owen Wilson has recently been rumored to take the romantic lead in the film from American Pie and About a Boy director Paul Weitz, 24 Frames now has word that Paul Rudd will snag the role instead. Read on!

The story follows an unmarried woman who meets a man she went to school with (Rudd) but never really knew. It turns out he's been harboring thoughts about her, and possibly a secret as well. Sounds like half the relationships that blossom from those who end up living in their home town. As expected, the film will start shooting this spring when "30 Rock" goes on hiatus. It's Fey's only film project right now while Rudd has both Judd Apatow's This is Forty and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, another book adaptation, due in theaters later this year. Rudd and Fey seems like a dream team, so I can't wait to see how this turns out.
