Harrison Ford, recently spoke to MTV, and divulged a few details about an upcoming comedic project he’s working on. Ford was last seen in this summer’s blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. In this new project he is slated to work with esteemed television and film producer JJ Abrams (Cloverfield, Star Trek).
….the J.J. Abrams project which Ford went on to tell me is being written “by the woman who wrote “The Devil Wears Prada.”This one is clearly “Morning Glory,” a film Ford was rumored to be interested in a year ago. Now we have confirmation from the man himself that he’ll star in this Aline Brosh McKenna script that according to EW.com is about “a struggling female news producer who recruits an iconic, egotistical anchorman to revive a failing network’s morning show.” Reese Witherspoon was the rumored leading lady when the initial rumors surfaced.
Ford is a really funny guy, and I’d love to see him in a good comedy. Key word being good. If Witherspoon stays attached to the project, I would definitely invest money to see it.
