Not long ago we reported that Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams would be teaming up with Director Roger Michel, Producer J.J. Abrams, The Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna, in an upcoming film about feuding news anchors titled Morning Glory. It has just been announced that Diane Keaton and Jeff Goldblum will be joining the amazing cast.
The film is about an aspiring news producer (McAdams) who tries to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors (Ford and Keaton). Goldblum will portray McAdams’ boss.
I can see why Keaton, is joining the film, she’s a sucker for a good dramedy, Goldblum will show up randomly here and there in a variety of films, McAdams is one of the new hot things, but what is Harrison Ford doing in this? It’s rare that you can get Ford to show up as a newscaster in a film. I thought he only showed up for $20 million action paydays? He’s either got something to prove or this is a realy good script.
Hell, last time McKenna was able to pull in Meryl Streep, so I guess it’s no surprise. It does seem like an odd mixture of actors though. I wonder how they will work together.
The film is scheduled to begin next month in New York. I can’t wait to see the first pictures!
What do you think of the casting for the film?
