Morning becomes Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum

keaton-goldblumAnnounced by Variety late on Monday, Diane Keaton and Jeff Goldblum will be joining Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams in a comedy called Morning Glory for Paramount Pictures.

Keaton and Ford will be playing the leads on a morning TV show who are constantly battling each other rather than working together, and McAdams will be the plucky young producer who takes it upon herself to save the show by making them get along, while Goldblum will play her boss.

I can’t tell you how pleased I am to know that Harrison Ford is going to be doing another comedy. One of my most favorite movies of all times is Working Girl, and it seems as if Morning Glory will be made with that same kind of “go get ’em, tiger” spirit. At the same time, I am hoping (possibly against hope) that there will be no romantic male lead for McAdams because what is wrong with there being a movie all about a woman’s career that doesn’t have to do with her personal life?

J.J. Abrams is producing, Roger Michell (Enduring Love, Notting Hill) is directing, and shooting starts next month in New York.

    More than anything, I’m happy to see Ford in something that involves people other than young Hollywood upstarts. I haven’t liked anything of his in quite some time, but I would enjoy watching him feud with Keaton.
