The Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder romantic comedy Destination Wedding is nabbed by Aviron Pictures
Destination Wedding, the upcoming romantic comedy film reunion of Winona Ryder (Stranger Things, Girl, Interrupted) and Keanu Reeves (John Wick, The Matrix), has been nabbed by Aviron Pictures, according to Deadline. This will be Reeves and Ryder’s fourth film together after Bram Stoker’s Dracula, A Scanner Darkly and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. Principal photography recently wrapped on the film in central California.
Keanu Reeves (The Matrix trilogy, John Wick) and Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Winona Ryder (Girl Interrupted, Stranger Things) will star in Victor Levin’s (5 to 7) comedy Destination Wedding, from Levin’s original script. The film tells the story of two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests, both pariahs at this affair, who develop a mutual affection despite themselves. But to act on those feelings would be to trust hope over experience, a foolish choice indeed.
Writer/director Levin’s debut film, 5 to 7 (2015) starred Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe, Frank Langella and Glenn Close. A Golden Globe winner and four-time Emmy nominee, his previous writing work has included Mad About You, Mad Men, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (2004) and Then She Found Me (2008). He is currently an executive producer, writer and director for the critically-acclaimed Starz comedy Survivor’s Remorse.
Sunshine Pictures’ Gail Lyon is producing with Two Camel Films’ Elizabeth Dell. Robert Jones is producing for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film. Elevated’s Cassian Elwes and The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey are executive producing. Aviron Pictures has the North American rights in a deal that reportedly came after Bloom, who is selling offshore rights, showed buyers a five minute sizzle reel.
