LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Production has begun in Los Angeles on "The Wedding Ringer," a big-screen comedy starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco, Screen Gems and Miramax said.

Set to play supporting roles are Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, Alan Ritchson, Mimi Rogers, Ignacio Serricchio, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby and Nicky Whelan.

Jeremy Garelick, the writer of "The Break-Up," is directing "The Wedding Ringer" from a screenplay he penned with Jay Lavender.

Hart plays Jimmy, someone "who provides best-man services for socially challenged guys, who -- for whatever reason -- have no one close enough to agree to stand by them on the day of their wedding," a synopsis said.

"Doug [played by Gad] a groom-to-be, has found himself in just such a situation, but, to make matters worse, he fabricates the names of not only a best man but nine groomsmen as well. When all else fails, Doug seeks out Jimmy's services to carry out a charade designed to make Doug look his best, but threatens to destroy everything if it fails."
