Michelle Monaghan Due to Join Hangover Team and Robert Downey Jr.

Todd Phillips took a chance when he forced Warner Bros. to let him cast Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis in The Hangover, but his gamble paid off when Hangover became the highest grossing R-rated comedy ever in July. Up next for Phillips is Due Date, a road trip comedy about an expectant father (Robert Downey Jr.) trying to race home to see the birth of his child alongside an annoying travel partner (Galifianakis).
Variety reports that Michelle Monaghan is set to join the comedy as Downey Jr.'s pregnant wife, reuniting her with her Kiss Kiss Bang Bang co-star. Shooting begins this fall.
