Sarsgaard, King, Reilly, Dern for Year of the Dog

According to THR, Paramount Pictures in negotiations with Peter Sarsgaard, Regina King, John C. Reilly and Laura Dern to star in Mike White's comedy Year of the Dog. Paramount has already picked up SNL alum Molly Shannon to star.

Helmed by School of Rock scribe White, the story centers on Peggy (Shannon), a happy-go-lucky secretary who lives alone with her beloved dog Pencil. But when Pencil unexpectedly dies, Peggy embarks on a journey of transformation.

Besides the listed stars, Year of the Dog will feature a slew of comedians in cameo roles. The film is expected to begin filming next month in Los Angeles.

Peter Sarsgaard has recently been spotted in both Jarhead with Jake Gyllenhaal and Flightplan with Jodie Foster.

John C. Reilly, who I still got to love for his role in Chicago, will next appear beside Will Ferrell in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

Stay tuned for updates.
