Ellie Kemper has been cast in Sex Tape, the Sony Pictures comedy directed by Jake Kasdan that was just shifted to a July 18, 2014 release date. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel star in the pic about young parents whose raunchy home video is accidentally synched to a handful of other devices (including her mother’s and the mailman’s), and they embark on a wild quest to retrieve them. Rob Corddry and Rob Lowe co-star. Kate Angelo wrote the original screenplay that was revised by Kasdan, Segel and Nicholas Stoller. On the big screen, Kemper broke out in Bridesmaids and will next be seen in Lynn Shelton’s Laggies opposite Keira Knightley.
