The Ten--a comedy about sin

A new movie called The Ten is currently in production, and features ten short stories based on the Ten Commandments. It's sort of a rip-off of Kieslowski's Dekalog, but since it's by two of those formerly funny guys from The State who directed Wet Hot American Summer, it's probably a comedy and won't be all that good.

But it's got an impressive and growing cast, including Paul Rudd, Famke Janssen, Jessica Alba, Winona Ryder, Rob Corddry, Gretchen Mol, Adam Brody, Liev Shreiber, and many others. How can these particular actors be best used in this movie exploring the nature of sin?

Adam Brody as a self-obsessed skateboarder who thinks that his gnarly 360 flip makes him a god? Famke Janssen as a woman who spends her Sundays wantonly writing legal briefs? Ruddy-faced Liev Schreiber as a man in a jealous frenzy over his neighbor Justin Theroux's invisible pores?

I'm hoping that Oliver Platt and Rob Corddry get to appear together in the "Thou shalt not kill" story and plot the death of Ron Silver. And Winona's contract likely explicitly states that she will not appear in the story for "Thou shalt not steal."
