Your Mom’s New Favorite Movie: Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton to Star in ‘And So It Goes…”

Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton

Listen, okay, your parents like to go to the movies, too. They really do. It’s fun for them. It’s good to get out of the house and sit in a room that they don’t have to clean up when they’re done. Those previews? They’re the tops! Even the commercials are fun! And the popcorn? Forget about it! That Nancy Meyers? What a talent! And here comes a brand new movie that sounds pretty much exactly like a Meyers flick, without a Meyers attachment. What a golden age of cinema!D

Deadline Hollywood reports that Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are set to star together in And So It Goes…, a new project penned by As Good As It Gets scribe Mark Andrus that will be directed by PJ Hogan. Amazingly, as our friends at The Playlist note, Douglas and Keaton have somehow never worked together over the long course of their respective careers.  Also, someone tell me that there is room in this cast for Michael Keaton, because wouldn’t that be just a hoot?

The film will see Douglas as “a self-absorbed and eccentric realtor whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son abruptly drops off a granddaughter the realtor never knew. With the help of his determined and loveable neighbor (Keaton), the realtor is pulled out of his selfish life and into a new one.” Now isn’t that just charming? And just what your moms and pops will very much enjoy taking in at the local cinema.

Producer Alan Greisman feels the same way, telling the outlet, “There’s a large demographic and need for these kind of films as evidenced by box office successes such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, It’s Complicated and Bucket List.” Greisman, when you’re right, you’re right (also, please note that, while I might fall out of your demographic, I also quite enjoy both Exotic Marigold and It’s Complicated, so keep churning that stuff out).
