Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac join comedy

Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac have signed up to star in new Columbia Pictures comedy The Dinner Party.

The movie is to begin shooting in the spring during Mac's break from his TV series The Bernie Mac Show.

It is about a man, played by Kutcher, marrying a black woman whose father, Mac, is having difficulty coming to terms with the marriage.

The Dinner Party is being written by Jay Scherick and David Ronn, but has yet to find a director.
