Screen Talk: Three more stars join ‘Valentine’s Day’
Friday 07 August 2009
Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah and Carter Jenkins have joined the already all-star cast of New Line's romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day', being directed by Garry Marshall. The ensemble already includes Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts, Hector Elizondo, Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane. The film follows five slightly interconnecting stories playing out in Los Angeles during Valentine's Day. Foxx plays a TV sports reporter who has been sent out on a "Valentine's Day in LA" story instead of covering his usual sports. Latifah plays the agent for Dane's character, a football player. Jenkins plays a young man who struggles to find time in the day to lose his virginity with his girlfriend (Emma Roberts) because of their hectic schedules.
Ben Affleck helped shape the script for 'The Town', a movie he is starring in and also directing. Affleck stars opposite Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall in this romantic crime thriller. The movie is based on the Chuck Hogan novel 'Prince of Thieves', and follows the relationship between a bank manager, a career criminal (Affleck) who stole more than her heart, and the dedicated FBI agent trying to bust the crook and his gang. Hamm plays the FBI agent with Hall the smitten bank manager.
Jennifer Aniston is to be a producer on 'Holler', a tale of lingering racial tensions in the Deep South, penned by Dana Adam Shapiro. Aniston is one of the many producers on the picture, which is 'inspired by true events'. The script centres on a biracial high school student who returns to his white mother's hometown in Mississippi, where he falls for a white girl. When prom season arrives, he is shocked to discover that she cannot be his date at the segregated prom.
