Rachel Bilson lands Life Happens

September 30th, 2010

Rachel Bilson has joined the cast of 'BBF and Baby'.

The 29-year-old actress - who shot to fame starring in teen television drama 'The O.C.' - will feature alongside Kate Bosworth and '27 Dresses' star Krysten Ritter in the indie comedy.

'BFF and Baby' - which was co-written by Ritter and director Kat Coiro - follows the story of two best friends who struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy in their relationship after Ritter's character falls pregnant and has a child.

Stardust Pictures' Justin Levine is set to finance and co-produce the film, alongside Ritter, Kat Coiro, David J. Phillips and Corbin Timbrook, with shooting set to begin in Los Angeles on October 19.

Rachel - who has also made appearances in 'The Last Kiss' and 'Jumper' following her departure from 'The O.C.' - recently admitted she misses playing Summer Roberts in the American teen drama, and working alongside co-stars Mischa Barton, Adam Brody and Benjamin McKenzie.

She said: "I do miss Summer terribly. The 'O.C.' was the most phenomenal time. I saw Mischa at Cannes, but I honestly miss everyone from the show."
