Night out with ‘Girlfriends’

McConaughey, Garner attend L.A. premiere

HOLLYWOOD — Monday’s preem of “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” at the Chinese left producer Jonathan Shestack in a reflective mood.

“Six years is a long time, even in this business,” he mused during the post-preem bash at Beso. “So tonight I feel like the end of a marathon.”

New Line topper Toby Emmerich noted that “Ghosts” is the latest in a string of romantic comedies from the banner, better known for scare fare like “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Friday the 13th.” “We’re a lot softer than people think we are,” he added.

Scott Moore, who penned the screenplay with Jon Lucas, opted for modesty and credited Charles Dickens as the main inspiration for “Ghosts.” “It’s easy when you have such good writing to work from,” he admitted.

Warner execs Alan Horn, Jeff Robinov, Dan Fellman and Sue Kroll attended along with director Mark Waters and cast members Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas, Emma Stone, Breckin Meyer and Lacey Chabert.
