In what I figured to be a very unlikely combination, Paramount has picked up Jack Black to join the likes of Nicole Kidman.

Black and Kidman

According to Variety, Jack Black has joined Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh in Noah Baumbach's untitled film for John Lesher's Paramount Classics.

Par Classics has picked up Scott Rudin to produce.

Scott Rudin has produced films such as Failure to Launch, Team America, The Village, Zoolander and has a full load of upcoming films such as There Will be Blood.

Black will play the husband of a young woman who is visited at her upstate home by her sister and 12-year-old nephew. Baumbach's script originally was titled "Nicole in the Country," until that became too literal when Kidman committed.

This untitled project is one of many films that Jack Black has joined since his mellowed-out run in the Peter Jackson film King Kong.

Jack Black just completed the Nancy Meyers-directed The Holiday, which Col opens Dec. 8. Next out is Nacho Libre on June 2, followed by Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, which New Line releases Nov. 17.

Stay tuned for updates.
