Fox 2000 romance in the air after ‘Sex’

Parker, Keaton to join Danes, Wilson

Sarah Jessica Parker and Diane Keaton will star in an untitled Fox 2000 romantic comedy written and to be directed by Thomas Bezucha (“The Big Eden”).

The film, Parker’s first feature since “Sex and the City” ended, also will star Claire Danes, Rachel McAdams, Dermot Mulroney and Luke Wilson.

Michael London (“Sideways”) is producing the pic, which will begin production Feb. 28 in Los Angeles and Connecticut.

It is the rare picture that is getting made because it broadened its scope from a down-and-dirty indie to a studio film with a strong star cast.

Bezucha got close to production starts twice before, when the title was “Hating Her,” only to have his financiers drop out at the last moment. London joined the project, and Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler and exec veep Carla Hacken sparked to the script.

Keaton then signed on, and Parker, who had tried to make the movie in one of its previous incarnations but was committed to “Sex and the City,” took the role when it came back around. Pic is still modestly budgeted for a studio effort at about $15 million.

The comedy revolves around the annual holiday gathering of a bohemian family that’s thrown into turmoil when the fair-haired son introduces his fiancee, a high-strung, self-absorbed Gotham socialite whom the family hates.
