Actress Anne Heche has signed up to join PUNK'D star Ashton Kutcher in the romantic comedy SPREAD - after Jennifer Jason Leigh quit the movie. The Men In Trees star will feature alongside Kutcher - who plays a serial womaniser - replacing Leigh, who dropped out of the project last month (Feb08) for undisclosed reasons. However, recent news reports have suggested the reason for the walk-out is because Leigh and her husband, Margot At The Wedding director Noah Baumbach, are expecting a child. With only a minor glitch in the recasting, director David MACkenzie will resume production again this week (begs3Mar08).
