Remember a while back,when we reported that Harrison Ford and producer/director JJ Abrams were working on a comedy together? Well, there’s more to the story. The film is entitled Morning Glory, and it will star Ford as a top notch Ron Burgundy-esque news anchor, who butts heads with his female boss. It was rumored that Ford’s co-star would be Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, but according to Variety, those reports are false. Mean Girls alum Rachel McAdams, has signed on as the female lead to work opposite Ford.
McAdams would play an aspiring news producer who tries to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors. Ford will play one of the anchors, and the female thesp playing the other anchor will be set shortly.
Aline Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada”) wrote the script.
Good for you Rachel! First, Sherlock Holmes, and now Morning Glory? Someone likes hanging around Academy Award nominated actors. Hmm, they stated that the female co-anchor spot is still open……Reese?
