Diane Keaton and Jeremy Irons are set to star in “Love, Weddings & Other Disasters,” Dennis Dugan’s ensemble comedy which will be introduced to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
Fully financed by Align, filming will begin Sept. 16 in Boston. Diego Boneta, DNCE guitarist JinJoo Lee, Jesse McCartney and Veronica Ferres also star.
“Love, Weddings & Other Disasters” is a female-driven romantic comedy about the people who work on weddings while their own relationships and personal lives are far from perfect.
This is Dugan’s first independent feature, but his box office hits include “Happy Gilmore,” “Just Go With It,” “Big Daddy” and “Grown Ups” and “Grown Ups 2.” His lifetime box office has surpassed the $2 billion mark. He also wrote the screenplay.
Nadine de Barros of Fortitude, Mike Rachmill, Dan Reardon, Adrian Politowski and Martin Metz are producers. Lisa Wolofsky, Frank Buchs, Al Munteanu and Santosh Govindaraju are executive producing. Gersh and Endeavor Content are handling US rights.
“It is an honor to bring to TIFF the first indie comedy by such a talented and highly commercial director like Dennis,” said Nadine de Barros.
