Zach Braff is directing again - Swingles

Zach Braff is in negotiations to direct, rewrite and co-star in the comedy Swingles for Paramount Pictures according to Variety. Cameron Diaz has already signed on to star.

The story centers on a bachelor who is dumped by his wingman and teams up with a sharp-tongued woman he can't stand in order to meet singles.

Gosh, I wonder if they will end up falling out over some misunderstanding, but then have to meet up again at a party / meeting / sports event and then realise that they love each other?

Kevin Misher, whose credits include the upcoming Michael Mann-helmed Public Enemies, is producing.

This will be Braff's second time directing a feature. He previously directed the 2004 indie Garden State. If you haven't seen that I highly recommend you do as it is a superb film.

Hopefully Swingles will have some of the coolness that Garden State had, but the plot seems like yet another predictable romantic comedy.
