As the leading man on Fox’s sex-tinged teen drama, The OC, Adam Brody knows a thing or two about girls and that expertise will come in handy. Brody will play the lead character in Some Girls, a high-profile feature adaptation of writer-producer Neil LaBute’s play. Directed by Jennifer Getzinger (Mad Men), Some Girls will be produced by LaBute with Leeden Media’s Patty West and Chris Schwartz, in conjunction with Andrew Carlberg Production. No other casting as been announced.
In Some Girls, Brody will play a writer who travels cross-country to meet up with his ex-girlfriends in a series of hotel rooms before getting married. The play, billed as Some Girl(s), was produced off-Broadway by MCC Theater in 2006 with a cast led by Will & Grace star Eric McCormack. The "girls" in the piece were portrayed by Maura Tierney, Fran Drescher, Brooke Smith and Judy Reyes.
Best known for his role as a nerdy teenager Seth Cohen in The OC, Brody’s recent film credits include In the Land of Women, Welcome To The Jungle and the 2011 Toronto entry The Oranges. Brody will also star in the upcoming biopic Lovelace alongside Amanda Seyfriend and James Franco, in Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress and in director Lorene Scafaria’s Seeking a Friend for the End of the World opposite Steve Carell and Keira Knightley.
Some Girls is set to start shooting in April 2012.
