Lucy joins Cameron for Bad Teacher

Lucy Punch has been cast in black comedy Bad Teacher

Lucy Punch is to star alongside Cameron Diaz in the black comedy Bad Teacher.

The award-winning British actress will play model teacher Amy Squirrel, who gets caught up in a love triangle with Cameron's foul-mouthed, gold-digging, conniving teacher Elizabeth Halsey.

Directed by Jake Kasdan, Bad Teacher is expected to start filming in March in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lucy's next big screen outing will be in comedy Dinner For Schmucks with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, followed by Woody Allen's You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, alongside Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

She also appears in comedy Young Americans with Anna Faris, and is filming another comedy, Earthbound, which also stars Kate Hudson, Kathy Bates and Gael Garcia Bernal.
