In the upcoming Rob Reiner comedy, Douglas enlists Keaton’s aid in raising the granddaughter he never knew he had
Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton come together for director Rob Reiner‘s latest comedy, “And So It Goes.” The film features Douglas as a realtor who finds his life turned upside down when his estranged son shows up and drops off a granddaughter he never knew he had.
Suddenly, he finds himself in charge of this young girl, and he’s not exactly fond of children. That becomes quickly clear in the movie’s first official trailer, when he threatens to spay (or is that neuter?) a couple of them if they touch his car. So he goes to his neighbor, played by Diane Keaton, for help.
The trailer promises plenty of silliness, as Douglas slowly abandons his grouchy ways while growing closer to both his granddaughter and Keaton. He goes from threatening children to bonding with his granddaughter over giant teddy bears and flirting awkwardly with his neighbor.
Rob Reiner directed “And So It Goes” from a screenplay by Mark Andrus. The film also stars Frances Sternhagen, alongside Sterling Jerins, Paloma Guzman, and Frankie Valli. Reiner produced alongside Alan Greisman and Mark Damon. “And So It Goes” will be distributed by Clarius Entertainment, and will be in theaters on July 11, 2014.
