And this cast just keeps getting bigger.

Coming Soon is reporting that Elizabeth Banks has joined the cast of the upcoming film, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING, which is set to star Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Matthew Morrison, and Rodrigo Santoro.

The film is based on the beloved book of the same name, and will follow four couples attempting to have children. Kirk Jones of WAKING NED DEVINE fame is directing the film, which will be hitting on May 11, 2012.  As a fan of Banks, this is definitely a welcome addition to a film that I have a hard time really caring that much about.

In other casting news, Ralph Fiennes is currently in talks to star in a film entitled A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY (according to Screen Daily and The Playlist). 

The film is based on the Ivan Turgenev play of the same name and will see Fiennes star as Mikhail Aleksandrovich, the lead of this romantic drama. Fiennes will allegedly be learning Russian for the role, and will see him be directed by Vera Glag. Personally, as a fan of Fiennes, this is definitely an interesting bit of casting. He’s also got a role in BOND 23, so we’ll be seeing Fiennes a lot, especially now that the HARRY POTTER franchise is dead and gone.
