Rene Russo will topline opposite Dennis Quaid in MGM/Paramount’s remake of family comedy “Yours, Mine and Ours,” with Raja Gosnell directing.
The studios are planning to ramp up production of “Yours” for a November 2005 release. MGM-based Robert Simonds is producing.
Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball co-starred in the 1968 original as a widower with 10 children marrying a widow with eight kids. Van Johnson, Tim Matheson and Gary Goetzman also starred in the film, based on Helen Eileen Beardsley’s true-life 1964 bestseller “Who Gets the Drumsticks?”
The remake follows two single parents who plan to elope but must deal with the children trying to sabotage the marriage.
Russo recently starred in sports drama “Two for the Money” for Morgan Creek. Quaid most recently toplined “In Good Company.”
