Sidelined with a creative misfire so severe in Elizabethtown, the entire movie needed to be checked into Cirque Lodge for depression, Cameron Crowe is finally back doing what he was born to do: putting together kickass movie soundtracks. From Variety:
Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon will star in an untitled Cameron Crowe romantic comedy adventure at Columbia Pictures.
Columbia was the winning bidder, beating out four rival studios, in landing the fully developed project, which is being produced by Scott Rudin. Crowe, who wrote the screenplay, is also producing.
Studio is keeping the logline of the contemporary-set project under wraps.
Whatever this movie is about, the very fact that it romantically pairs two of the most tightly-coiled, type-A-list stars in Hollywood should guarantee at the very least some choice tantrum scenes, followed by an inevitable pouty break-up montage set to the The Smithereens' "Since You Went Away."
