P.J. Hogan helming comedy starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton
Foresight Unlimited has come onboard to finance and produce comedy “And So It Goes,” starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton.
Mark Andrus (“As Good as It Gets”) is scripting, and P.J. Hogan (“Peter Pan”) is set to helm. Shooting is slated to begin in the late spring.
Foresight Unlimited will present “Goes” to international buyers starting at the American Film Market.
Pic will be produced by Alan Greisman, Rob Reiner and Mark Damon. Exec producers are Tamara Birkemoe and Grant Cramer.
Douglas will play an eccentric, self-centered realtor whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son drops off a granddaughter he never knew. Keaton will play his determined and lovable neighbor.
“There’s a large demographic and need for these kind of films, as evidenced by box office successes such as ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,’ ‘It’s Complicated’ and ‘Bucket List,’?” Greisman said.
Foresight’s slate includes Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor,” starring Mark Wahlberg, and “2 Guns,” starring Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. Both films will be released in the U.S. by Universal in 2013 and are produced by Emmett/Furla.
