'Baby' boom: Six join indie pic
EmptyNEW YORK -- Jerry O'Connell, Heather Graham, John Corbett, Katie Finneran, Ian Ziering and Lara Flynn Boyle will join forces for the indie romantic comedy "Baby on Board."
Brian Herzlinger's indie feature follows a happily married couple (O'Connell, Graham) whose lives and high-powered careers are thrown into chaos thanks to an unplanned pregnancy. Corbett and Finneran play their best friends, a bitter couple whose misguided advice on parenting and marriage only makes things worse.
Flynn Boyle plays Graham's overdemanding ad agency boss. Ziering plays a gay obstetrician and Graham's confidante.
A Plus Prods. and Big Shoot Prods. are backing the project, with A Plus' Emilio Ferrari ("I Know What You Did Last Winter") producing and Big Shoot's Russell Scalise executive producing. Scalise penned the screenplay with Michael Wright.
The five-week shoot is set to begin Tuesday in Chicago. Ferrari's Entertainment Seven has worldwide distribution rights.
