Jon Hamm Joins 'Aardvark', Abbie Cornish Is 'The Girl Who Invented Kissing', Maika Monroe Boards 'Felt'

The ever busy Jon Hamm has found time to join Zachary Quinto and Jenny Slate in the upcoming indie, Aardvark. Written and directed by Brian Shoaf with Quinto starring and producing, the film centers on a mentally ill man suffering from hallucinations. So when he falls in love he can't tell if she's real or just in his head. At the same time his new therapist has also found love with his famous brother, played by Hamm. Next up for Hamm is a role in Edgar Wright's crime flick, Baby Driver. [THR]

Abbie Cornish will get to make out with Luke Wilson in The Girl Who Invented Kissing, the directorial debut of Tom Sierchio. Also starring Suki Waterhouse, Dash Mihok, and Vincent Piazza, the film centers on two brothers, the younger in charge of caring for the older, whose lives are turned around by a mysterious woman who enters their lives. Cornish hasn't been seen much since appearing in last year's Robocop remake. She'll presumably be seen next in Solace, the psychological thriller starring Anthony Hopkins. Wilson can be seen this month in two very different films. One is Adam Sandler's awful The Ridiculous 6, and the other is Concussion opposite Will Smith. [THR]

Maika Monroe, who can be seen in the new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, is in talks to join Liam Neeson in the "Deep Throat" thriller, Felt. The spy film is based on special agent Mark Felt, the whistleblower who exposed the Watergate scandal. Peter Landesman (Parkland, Concussion) wrote and directed the film which also features Jason Bateman and Diane Lane among its cast.
