Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Todd Lasance (CW’s The Flash), Max Silvestri (The Good Place) have been added to the cast of The Divorce Party along with the film’s writers Lane Garrison (Roots miniseries) and Mark Famiglietti (NBC’s Aquarius). First time director H. Will Thompson is at the helm and the film is presently shooting in Georgia. The pic follows a newly dumped divorcee who hires his former wedding planner to throw a “divorce party” celebrating his new singledom. Sprockerfeller Films and 2020 Productions are producing along with Martin Sprock, Paresh Ghelani, Sunil Perkash and Ryan R. Johnson. Bowden will takeover the role of Jan — replacing previously announced Keisha Castle-Hughes — the best friend who sides with the ex-wife. She is repped by Innovative Artists and Management 360. Silvestri, with WME, plays Dan the better half of Jan. Repped by Marquee Management and Silver Lining Entertainment, Lasance will play Chad, who helps aid the main character in his transformation. Garrison (Abrams Artists, Untitled Entertainment and Crimson Media) and Famiglietti (CESD and Silver Lining Entertainment) will play Colin and Jake respectively, two co-workers who assist the main character as he strives to find a balance as a single man.
