With Knight & Day sparking a still-unconfirmed demand for Cameron Diaz action-comedies, Exclusive Media has cast the What Happens in Vegas co-star as the lead in Agent: Century 21.
As the title's gratuitous product placement delicately hints at, Diaz's character works at Century 21--the real estate place, not the discount clothing store. As a recent divorcée desperate to keep her job and kids, she takes on an unspecified "unpleasant task" for her boss, and somehow that task ends up getting her kidnapped and involved in a Mexican drug war, and she'll be all, "I'm not that kind of agent, I'm a REAL ESTATE agent," and then maybe she'll drop a mention of how Century 21 is the Official Real Estate Company of U.S. Soccer, because there's a reason Century 21 is paying for this film not to be called Agent: RE/MAX.
The script comes from Stuart Little writer Greg Brooker, and the film will mark the feature debut of Danish director Adam Hashemi. Benicio del Toro also reportedly has some kind of part in this, perhaps playing the drug lord who will at first find Diaz's constant nagging about feminism and being kidnapped to be insufferable, but will later realize that their mutual frustrations have formed some white-hot sexual tension. Regardless, he will probably do some unintelligible muttering.
