Maggie Gyllenhaal in for Sam Mendes

She’s replacing Toni Collette in his latest film

He still doesn’t have a name for his new comedy, but Sam Mendes has already made a casting change.

Due to a couple of schedule shifts, he’s lost Toni Collette, who was due to co-star alongside John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph in the tale of a couple searching for somewhere to start a family. Maggie Gyllenhaal, who will next be seen in The Dark Knight, is taking her place, and will report to the set next week.

Variety watched the swap.
