Uma Thurman and Jessica Biel have signed on to join Gerard Butler in football comedy Playing The Field.
The Bounty Hunter actor will star as a former football player who finds himself dodging romantic advances from 'soccer mums' after he agrees to coach his son's team, in an attempt for some father-son's bonding.
Jessica would play Gerard's ex-wife, while Uma is a fellow parent in the Gabriele Muccino-directed film, co-produced by Gerard and penned by Robbie Fox, reported Variety.
The movie is scheduled to start production in March.
Next up for Uma, last seen in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, is Bel Ami alongside Robert Pattinson. She will also reprise her role as The Bride in the third instalment of Kill Bill.
Jessica, who will soon start filming rom-com New Year's Eve, previously appeared in The A-Team.
