Chalke will play her friend. Taye Diggs also will star in the film from out director Nisha Ganatra (Chutney Popcorn), which is in production in Canada. Chalke will then segue to the romantic comedy Alchemy alongside Tom Cavanagh and Illeana Douglas for writer-director Evan Oppenheimer. Shooting is scheduled to start at the end of the month in New York City.
