'Wedding' for Reitman and his mate
EmptyJason Reitman and producing partner Daniel Dubiecki are exec producing "The Wed ding," a romantic comedy that visits the perils and peccadilloes of young love.
Jesse Eisenberg is attached to star in the project as a young man who crashes the wedding of a 30-ish woman he is infatuated with. Anna Friel, who stars on ABC's "Pushing Daisies" and in Universal's upcoming adventure tale "Land of the Lost," plays the bride.
Max Winkler is penning the script for "Wedding." The UTA-repped writer has "The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things" set up with Reitman and Dubiecki's Hard C.
A number of studios and financiers are eyeing "Wedding," though none has come aboard yet. Reitman has collaborated on a number of projects with Fox Searchlight, including "Juno" and the ninja picture "Bonzai Shadowhands," which is in development with Reitman attached to produce and potentially direct.
The WMA-repped Eisenberg, who made his name with the divorce drama "The Squid and the Whale," stars in "Adventureland," the Greg Mottola coming-of-age story that Miramax will release next year. (partialdiff)
