Cameras are now rolling on the next film by Cameron Crowe, and as ever, he's got an array of talent at his disposal. Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin all have roles in the wacky romantic comedy, and someone with onscreen experience in both departments is coming on board.

Canadian funnyman, Montreal Canadians fan and Apatow family tree member Jay Baruchel has joined the still-untitled movie. A reworking of a previous, unmade Crowe project called "Deep Tiki" (that once had Ben Stiller and Resse Witherspoon attached before it fell apart), the story will follow a military contractor (Cooper) on a top-secret military launch mission assignment in Hawaii who teams with an Air Force pilot (Stone) to kibosh the operation. Baruchel will play Cooper's step-brother, with the storyline also apparently including a talking computer and "mystical island forces." Certainly seems to be a very broad tone, at least on paper.

This is a nice gig for Baruchel, who is coming off the big summer hit "This Is The End." And with the number of comic ringers already in the cast, this could be quite potent. No release date for this one yet, but we reckon we'll be seeing this next year. [THR]
