U romances ‘Date’

Celebs attend grand 'Wedding'

Gold Circle Films, which first hit the matrimonial movie mother lode with “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” was back looking for nuggets at Thursday’s Universal CityWalk preem of “The Wedding Date.”

This time, the romantic comedy revolves around a single woman who hires an escort to pose as her boyfriend at her sister’s wedding.

“It’s ‘Pretty Woman’ backwards,” guest James Burrows quipped.

Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks said the romantic comedy fits exactly into the company’s biz plan.

“Comedy and horror,” said Brooks, who pointed to his company’s $50 million-plus domestic take from “White Noise” as an example from the scary side.

Pic’s launch also marked a milestone for frosh producers Michelle Chydzik Sowa and Nathalie Marciano, who credited a long list of friends with assisting them.

Among those at the Hard Rock after-party were U’s Ron Meyer, Stacey Snider, Scott Stuber, Mary Parent and Frederick Huntsberry; plus guests including Sidney Poitier, Howard Weitzman, Haim Saban and Eric McCormack.
