If you were a fan of Garry Marshall’s romantic ensemble comedy Valentine’s Day, you’re in luck because there’s more where that came from. According to THR, four high profile actors are in negotiations to star in his follow up to the film entitled, New Year’s Eve. What do you think of Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Hilary Swank getting on this rom-com train?
The trade reports that the film centers on the “intertwining stories of a group of New Yorkers as they navigate their way through romance over the course of New Year’s Eve.” The premise sounds simple enough and it’s almost an exact replica of what occurred in the first film.
As for the new cast members, they’ll add fresh blood to the sequel which will feature De Niro as “a bitter dying man in a hospital, while Pfeiffer will be a frustrated executive secretary who decides to tackle her unfulfilled resolutions. Swank would play a producer of the famed Times Square New Year’s Eve show.”
On another note, Ashton Kutcher will also appear in the film as a “guy who hates New Year’s Eve.” This is interesting considering the fact that he appeared in Valentine’s Day as well.
What do you think of the possible cast for Valentine’s Day? Who else should be brought in?
