Jennifer Garner has pacted with Warner Bros. Pictures to topline a remake of romantic comedy “Christmas in Connecticut.”
Project reunites Garner with “13 Going on 30” producing partners Susan Arnold and Donna Roth. There is no writer assigned yet to the remake of the 1945 screwball holiday classic, directed by Peter Godfrey and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Dennis Morgan and Sydney Greenstreet. Original storyline revolves around a cooking writer — the Martha Stewart of her time — whom the world believes to living on a cozy farm in Connecticut with her husband and baby. In reality, she’s a single woman living on her own in New York. The ruse is discovered when a holiday meal is planned at her fake farm.
