A.C.O.D. stands for Adult Children of Divorce, and the film is about a grown man who discovers he was enlisted in a study about divorced children years earlier. When he’s brought into a follow-up study as an adult, it wreaks havoc on his family. The lead character will be played by Adam Scott, and according to Deadline, his “Parks and Recreation” co-star Amy Poehler is the latest in a long line of awesome actors to join this project. Read who else is involved after the jump.

Richard Jenkins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Catherine O’Hara, Jane Lynch, Clark Duke, and Jessica Alba are all on board for A.C.O.D., which will be directed by Stu Zicherman from a screenplay by Zicherman and Ben Karlin. Poehler just wrapped Season 4 of “Parks and Rec,” and is a great addition to an already-fantastic cast. Zicherman has written screenplays before and was set to be an executive producer on the ABC show “Fables” based on Bill Willingham’s excellent graphic novels, and though that project ultimately hasn’t moved forward, I’ve got high hopes for this one. Anyone else think it could be good?
