Topher Grace joins Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl in Gently Down the Stream
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The ensemble romantic comedy GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM got yet another star attached to the project today as Topher Grace has joined the cast. As you recall, the film is about a married couple that pretends to still be married as they attend their daughter’s wedding. Grace will play the son of the married couple that falls in love with a Latin woman, who also happens to be his adopted brother’s sister. Because pseudo-incest love stories are always a crowd favorite..sigh. I appreciate the efforts to put an all-star cast together for a rom-com, but nothing about this film gets me excited. Now they’ve added this incest-like love story and it’s like they’re trying to keep people away.
The film has quite a cast that includes Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl. They’re still ironing out who will play which character. Justin Zackham will be directing the film, which will start filming in July.
