Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Christina Applegate prove that stars do align.

The threesome have all signed on to star in an untitled STX comedy, which was formerly under the stewardship of Judd Apatow.

According to Us Weekly, the romp was originally titled Bad Moms, was set to be released by Paramount and produced by Apatow, with Leslie Mann on board to star. All of that has changed. What does remain is The Hangover writers, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who have stayed on to write and direct. Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland) and Bill Block will produce.

“Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are masters at creating relatable characters that audiences instantly embrace, and then putting them in hilarious real-life situations for great comedic results,” STX president and CCO Oren Aviv said in a statement. “This film provides the rare opportunity for a half-dozen strong female lead roles, and we are thrilled to have assembled an exceptional cast led by Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell. We can’t wait to start production and be part of the magic this team will bring to the screen.”

The film with Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Christina Applegate will reportedly focus on three overworked mothers, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The stressed out mommas decide to switch up their lives a bit to free themselves from the responsibilities of everyday life. Needless to say, that decision leads to problems with the "perfect" clique of mothers, led by the head of the PTA.

Who thinks this new Mila Kunis — who will likely relate as a new mom — romp will be just a little be awesome?
