Kate Hudson, John Krasinski and Ginnifer Goodwin join SOMETHING BORROWED
I’m going to need Kate Hudson to step away from the rom-coms. There I said it. Not that I haven’t said it before. Hudson will be teaming up with John Krasinski and Ginnifer Goodwin for SOMETHING BORROWED, another wedding themed romantic romp.
The film is an adaptation of Emily Giffin’s chick lit book of the same name. The story centers around a Manhattan attorney named Rachel (Goodwin) who has a fling with her best friend Darcy’s (Hudson) fiance (Colin Egglesfield). Krasinski will play the role of Ethan, a trusted friend of Rachel’s.
If all that just sounds like a bunch of drama to you. Maybe this description will pique your interest. According to Wikipedia:
The novel centers around the protagonist and narrator, Rachel White, a thirty-year-old single woman who is a consummate good-girl. She and Darcy Rhone have been best friends since childhood, and hard-working Rachel is often in the shadow of flashy, sometimes selfish Darcy. Then, after a night of drinking on Rachel’s thirtieth birthday, she sleeps with Darcy’s fiance, Dex. After this turns into an affair, Rachel explores the meanings friendship, true love, and ethics.
That’s better. Wikipedia goes on to point out that the story “addresses the stigma against single women in their thirties and the pressure that society places on them to get married. This is a realistic situation that women face in today’s society.” Hopefully this will be a darker comedy with a weightier message than just another BRIDE WARS.
Directed by Luke Greenfeld, filming will begin next month.
