Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, and Ginnifer Goodwin are involved in negotiations to star in Ken Kwapis-directed "He's Just Not That Into You."
Looks like well-known faces are going to dominate scenes in "He's Just Not That Into You" if everything really goes as expected.
Yes, names like Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, and Ginnifer Goodwin are all reported to be in talks to take parts in the comedy, which has already got Drew Barrymore to both topline and produce through her Flower Films.
Should deals are finally made, Connelly will likely be billed as a woman stuck in a tired marriage with Cooper's character while Connolly as a man pining after a woman who is having an affair with Cooper.
As for Goodwin, the actress is prepared for the role of a young woman obsessed with Connolly's character who tries to set up accidental meetings with him only to run across his friend, a starring part that Long is negotiating for. Barrymore, in the meantime, is set to portray a woman perpetually confused by dating, now more than ever in a culture that is more obsessed with technology than actual human contact.
Filming is said to start early September this year under the direction of Ken Kwapis, who will helm from script penned by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the writing team behind Barrymore's 1999 vehicle "Never Been Kissed." Kwapis, also a TV producer, most recently received harsh criticisms for his effort in "License to Wed", which earned only 7 percent 'Fresh' rating from Rotten Tomatoes, but let's hope that this movie can mend his failure with the help of the promising lineup, if, once again, everything turns out as expected.
