Whales tells the true story of a Greenpeace volunteer (Barrymore) and a small-town reporter (The Office's Krasinski) who team up to save three gray whales that are trapped underneath ice in the Arctic Circle. Bell (Heroes, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) would play a reporter from Los Angeles sent to Alaska to cover the story.

Ken Kwapis (He's Just Not That Into You) is attached to direct. The movie is scheduled to shoot in Alaska in the fall.
