Garofalo, Stewart getting ‘Romantic’ for Touchstone

Janeane Garofalo and Jon Stewart are hoping to get “Almost Romantic” for Touchstone Pictures.

The pair are attached to Adam & Amy Gershwin’s romantic comedy spec that Touchstone snagged for a low six-figure against mid-six-figure pricetag. Andy Licht and Jeff Mueller are producers on the pic.

Stewart and Garofalo will play a bickering best man and maid of honor at the wedding of their close friends. When the groom is incapacitated from an accident incurred dancing the Hora, the pair end up taking the non-refundable Caribbean honeymoon instead of the newly married couple.

Exec producers on the project are Jimmy Miller, who manages Stewart; Dave Rath and Rick Messina, who both manage Garofalo.

The deal for the Gershwins was brokered by Dina Carlaftes of the Agency. Attorney Deborah Klein also repped the writers and Licht/Mueller.

David DiCamillo of UTA repped Garofalo in the deal. William Morris Agency handled Stewart.

Touchstone prexy Donald DeLine brought the project into the studio. Senior VP of production Todd Garner will oversee it.
