*Lamorne Morris is in negotiations to join Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams in the New Line comedy “Game Night,” reports Variety.
The film follows several couples whose regularly planned game night goes terribly wrong. Production is expected to start within the next few months.
Jesse Plemons and “Pitch” star Kylie Bunbury have also signed on to the project, to be directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley — the directing duo behind the 2015 comedy “Vacation.”
Morris and Bunbury will play one of the couples.
Bateman is producing alongside James Garavente for Aggregate Films, while John Davis and John Fox will produce for Davis Entertainment. Goldstein and Daley also wrote the latest version of the screenplay, based on Mark Perez’s original draft.
Morris is currently in his sixth season on the Fox sitcom “New Girl.” On the big screen, he was most recently seen in “Barbershop: The Next Cut” with Ice Cube and appears next in the Netflix pic “Sandy Wexler” starring Adam Sandler.
