Olivia Newton-John joins Twilight: Eclipse star Xavier Samuel in A Few Best Men
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
After an excellent episode in television’s GLEE, Olivia Newton-John has gotten back on track and will star alongside TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE alum Xavier Samuel in the comedy A FEW BEST MEN. The Austrailian film (shot entirely Down Under) will follow a groom and his three best men as they travel to the Outback to celebrate a wedding. Olivia Newton-John will play the mother-of-the-bride and Xavier Samuel will play the groom. The script was written by Dean Craig, Share Stallings and Laurence Malkin and directed by Stephan Elliott. Shooting will begin next week in Sydney and U.S. audiences should look for a theatrical release (hopefully) in 2012.
I think this sounds like a cute concept and I can’t turn down a film with those awesome Australian accents so I’ll be keeping an eye out for this. And of course I’ll keep all of you up to date as well, goodness knows we all want to help Ms. Newton-John get back to her GREASE iconic status.
