Abrams, Reese, Ford?

10.16.2007

Roger Michell (NOTTING HILL) has signed on to direct the JJ Abrams produced romantic comedy MORNING GLORY. Paramount recently paid big bucks for rights to the script, which was written by Aline Brosh McKenna (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA). The film follows a faltering morning news producer who recruits an iconic but difficult anchorman, who sadly isn't Ron Burgandy, to revive the ratings of her "Today"-like show. In talks to star in the film are Reese Witherspoon and Harrison Ford, who will play Captain Kirk. Oh wait, that's that other JJ Abrams movie. Abrams, despite only making his feature directorial debut on M:I:III, has become a force in Hollywood producing a number of high profile projects including CLOVERFIELD/1-18-08 and the upcoming STAR TREK "reboot," which he will also direct. Filming on GLORY is scheduled to begin this fall.

Extra Tidbit: Is Brosh a middle name or last name? Either way, I like saying it. Brosh.
