by Danielle Tabary on February 25, 2011

Uma Thurman and Jessica Biel have signed on to join Gerard Butler in Nu Image/Millennium Films’ soccer comedy Playing the Field, which begins shooting in Shreveport next month.

Butler stars as a former pro-soccer who’s just too irresistible for all the soccer moms to resist after he agrees to coach his son’s soccer team in an attempt to bond with the boy. Biel will play Butler’s ex-wife, while Thurman will play a fellow parent.

Butler is producing with his Evil Twins partner Alan Siegel, as well as Jonathan Mostow, Kevin Misher and Heidi Jo Markel. Gabriele Muccino will direct Playing the Field from a script by Robbie Fox.
