The film stars Jennifer Garner ("Daredevil"), Mark Ruffalo ("View From The Top" and Judy Greer ("Adaptation"). The story centers on a 13-year-old girl named Jenna who dreams of being popular. During her birthday party, she plays the kissing game Seven Minutes in the Closet. The game turns out to be a humiliating experience for her, and she refuses to come out of the closet. When she does emerge, she finds herself five days shy of her 30th birthday. Serkis will play the adult Jenna's boss, and Ball will play her boyfriend, a New York Rangers hockey player, according to The Hollywood Reporter. British-born Serkis is currently working on Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"). Ball will be seen next in Isaac H. Eaton's "Dry Cycle" opposite Marisa Coughlan. "13 Going on 30" goes into production next month in Los Angeles.
