AceShowbiz - Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder are re-teaming for a romantic comedy called "Destination Wedding". The Canadian actor and the two-time Oscar nominee, who previously starred together in "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and "A Scanner Darkly", will play two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests who develop a mutual affection for each other through their mutual misery.
The film will be directed by Victor Levin ("5 to 7") from a script he wrote. Sunshine Pictures' Gail Lyon is producing with Two Camel Films' Elizabeth Dell. Robert Jones is producing for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film. Elevated's Cassian Elwes and The Fyzz Facility's Wayne Marc Godfrey are executive producing. Principal photography recently wrapped in central California.
Lyon said in a statement, "Elizabeth and I have both known Vic a long time." The producer continued, "And it's been our collective pleasure to work together, along with Cassian and The Fyzz, to bring this movie to life." Of Keanu and Winona's partnership, Lyon said that they "bring a lot of history and chemistry to their roles, which adds a wonderful dimension to their performances and their dynamic."
Fyzz Factory's Jones added, "When comedy is seated in character and truth it's both funny and moving, and on that basis Vic's screenplay is one of the best I've read in a long time." He praised the two co-stars, saying that they're "wonderfully skillful actors and their chemistry onscreen truly brings these irascible characters to life. Their unswerving commitment to the project is a testament to both material and director."
Reeves was last seen in this summer's "John Wick: Chapter 2", in which he reprised his role as the titular hitman, and Netflix's indie film "To the Bone" which also starred Lily Collins. Ryder, meanwhile, will appear in the highly-anticipated second season of Netflix's Stranger Things" on October 27.
