Amanda Seyfried, Katherine Heigl and Robert De Niro are going Gently Down the Stream
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It seems like director Justin Zackham is trying to put together a dream team cast of poor romantic comedies with his latest ensemble film GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM. So far, he has Amanda Seyfried, Katherine Heigl, Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton all attached to star in the wedding-themed comedy. In it, De Niro and Keaton will play a divorced couple that pretend to stay together for their daughter’s wedding while Seyfried will play the daughter getting married. No word on who Heigl will be playing, but I’m guessing she’ll be annoying in whatever role they give her.
Not that most rom-coms blow me away with their premise, but this one does absolutely nothing for me. That, and of the four main stars, none of them have shined in their latest films. Couple that with the fact that Zackman wrote the poor THE BUCKET LIST and it’s just hard to get excited for this.
