Mendes' Comedy: Maggie Gyllenhaal Replaces Toni Collette
May 2, 2008–Maggie Gyllenhaal will replace Toni Collette in Sam Mendes' untitled relationship comedy for Focus Features, based on Dave Eggers and wife Vendela Vida's original screenplay.
The film, which stars John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph, is about a young couple who travel around the U.S. searching for a place to put down roots.
Gyllenhaal will play a bohemian college professor who is an old friend of the character played by Krasinski.
Collette dropped out of the film due to scheduling delays on the shoot, which just began recently in Connecticut. Gyllenhaal begins lensing next week.
Gyllenhaal next appears in Warner's summer tentpole “The Dark Knight” as Rachel Dawes, Batman's love interest.
