According to Variety, Toni Collette, Katie Aselton, Bridget Everett and Molly Shannon are starring in the ensemble comedy “Fun Mom Dinner” with shooting starting Wednesday in Los Angeles. The film marks the directorial debut of Australian helmer Alethea Jones. Other cast members include Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”), Rob Huebel (“Transparent”), Adam Levine and Paul Rust. Jones is directing from a script by Julie Yaeger Rudd, centering on four moms whose only common ground is their kids’ preschool class, who decide to get together for a harmless “fun mom dinner.” When the night suddenly takes an unexpected turn and things gets real, these unlikely new friends soon realize they have more in common than just marriage and motherhood. June Pictures and Gettin’ Rad Productions are the production companies. Producers are June Pictures’ partners Andrew Duncan and Alex Saks with Gettin’ Rad’s Naomi Scott. Paul Rudd and Adam Scott will executive produce. “We’re really pleased that this has become such a female-driven project,” Naomi Scott told Variety. “It really is a love letter to moms.” She said that “Fun Moms Dinner” had its origins in discussions about motherhood that she had with Julie Yaeger Rudd, Paul Rudd’s wife. Naomi Scott is married to Adam Scott. “A lot of the story is based on our common experiences,” she added. “Julie’s script is hysterically funny.”
