John Krasinski and Drew Barrymore are going to save the Whales
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
John Krasinski and Drew Barrymore are teaming up to save some whales in the upcoming family film WHALES. The film is about three whales that were found trapped under ice in the Arctic Circle in 1988. Apparently, the rescue of these whales became a huge event as it became one of the first times the US and Russia worked together. Barrymore will play a Greenpeace activist that falls in love with a journalist played by John Krasinski.
I think Krasinski and Barrymore make a pretty cute couple. Them, plus the subject matter with poor, helpless, trapped whales should make for a cute and cuddly film. I’m curious as to which direction director Ken Kwapis will take the story. He can go the cute and cuddly route with more focus on the romance between the two leads, or he can go political with the animals and US-Soviet relations. Either way, I’m sure this will be a tear-jerker.
