Kathleen Turner, Frances Fisher to Star in ‘Someone Else’s Wedding’

Kathleen Turner and Frances Fisher are starring in the independent comedy “Someone Else’s Wedding,” which has started shooting in Montreal.

CCI Productions, Banner Films, Vroom Productions, and Alley Lime Productions are the film’s production companies.

Pat Kiely is directing from his own script. He is also one of the producers, alongside Arnie Zipursky for CCI, Robert Vroom, and Philip Svoboda for Alley Lime. Jeff Sackman and Berry Meyerowitz are executive producing the feature and selling international rights.

The film revolves around a dysfunctional family forced to confront what tore them apart at their eldest son’s nuptials. The cast includes Kevin Zegers, Jessica Paré, Jacob Tierney, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Luke Kirby and Wallace Shawn.

“I am so thrilled to be working with such an exceptional and legendary cast to bring ‘Someone Else’s Wedding,'” Kiely said. “This film is about a dysfunctional family at a wedding that no one wants to be at. The characters are loud and colorful, and seeing this group of actors embody them is like watching fireworks go off.”

Turner’s credits include “Romancing the Stone,” “War of the Roses” and “Peggy Sue Got Married,” for which she received an Oscar nomination. Fisher’s credits include “Titanic” and “The House of Sand and Fog.”

CCI recently completed “Undercover Grandpa,” winner of Best Comedy Feature and Best Actor at the International Family Film Festival and “Sled Dogs,” winner of best feature documentary at last weekend’s Whistler International Film Festival.
