Christina Applegate for The Rocker

Christina Applegate will co-star with Rainn Wilson in The Rocker, a music-themed comedy to be directed by Peter Cattaneo for Fox Atomic.

Also joining the cast are Jeff Garlin, Emma Stone, musician-actor Teddy Geiger, Jason Sudeikis , Jane Lynch and Demetri Martin (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart).

Based off a screenplay by Ryan Jaffe, The Rocker centers on a failed, over-the-hill drummer (Wilson) who, 20 years after getting booted out of his now uber-famous band, gets a second chance at fame with a new act, a high school garage band headed by his nephew (Josh Gad).

Applegate will play Wilson's love interest and the mother of the lead guitarist.

Though Jaffe wrote the original screenplay, scribes Wallace Wolodarsky and Maya Forbes have been picked up to write a more-recent version.

Production on The Rocker is set to being June 18th in Toronto.

Applegate has popped into a couple projects of recent but I still be remember her for Married with Children and Anchorman.

Stay tuned for updates.
