Foursome Accepts Touchstone’s Proposal


Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson and Aasif Mandvi have joined the cast of Touchstone’s romantic comedy The Proposal.

Disney is distributing the film that stars Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock. Anne Fletcher directs from a script by Peter Chiarelli. The story centers on a publishing executive (Bullock) who forces her assistant (Reynolds) to marry her so she can avoid deportation to Canada.

Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing; Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are executive producing.

Production is scheduled to begin this month.
