Hollywood slowly seems to be realising that those who are over 60 are people too, and has stepped up the amount of movies made about them, which is good news for Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, who are teaming up with director PJ Hogan (Peter Pan) for the romantic comedy And So It Goes.
Based on Mark Andrus’ (Georgia Rule) script, the movie is about a self-centered realtor (Douglas) whose life spins out of control when his son unexpectedly drops off a granddaughter for him to look after, even though he’s never met the little girl before. The newly appointed guardian seeks out the help of his daffy neighbour (Keaton), and as you might expect, the two seniors soon fall in love.
Producer Mark Damon commented, “Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are a perfect pairing as eccentrics who refuse the idea of love until they are hopelessly, inextricably mired in it. How they react to late in life love is hilarious, but moving, entertaining, yet tearfully touching – I must say, I absolutely love this script.”
Production is set to begin in the late spring of 2013. (Source: Deadline)
