Debunking the reports mentioning that Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel are teaming up for 'Laverne and Shirley', Garner's rep says, 'There is no truth' while Biel's rep calls the rumors 'false'.
Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel's representatives have dismissed reports the stars have signed up to appear in a movie remake of hit U.S. sitcom "Laverne & Shirley". The pair became friends on the set of Garry Marshall's film "Valentine's Day", and their co-star Jamie Foxx publicly compared them to the TV roommates.
Director Marshall subsequently confirmed plans to transform the TV hit into a film, and Garner sparked speculation the actresses had agreed to star, when she said in February, "We're dying to do it!" But her spokesperson has laughed off claims she's signed up to the film, telling GossipCop, "There is no truth (in the reports)", while Biel's rep adds, "(The) rumor is false."
Back in early February, Jamie Foxx suggested that Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel would become the next great duo. Foxx said, "During the movie, they were doing stuff off-screen that reminded me of 'Laverne & Shirley'. I think they're the new 'Laverne & Shirley'. They had some energy, and I mentioned that to Garry Marshall."
