Steve and Diane Keaton to make new movie
Martin, Keaton Will Once Again Play Married Couple
Written by: E. Van Dril
This will be Martin and Keaton’s third film playing a married couple.
Paramount Pictures has acquired “One Big Happy,” a comic pitch from “Party of Five” creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippmann with Diane Keaton and Steve Martin set to star, for a number in the high six-figures.
John Goldwyn and Lorne Michaels, of “SNL,” are set to produce.
The concept of this film is being kept very quiet, but sources tell Variety that “One Big Happy” will be “a family comedy about a couple and a family reconnecting amid various obstacles.” This material and premise makes sense for Martin and Keaton, considering the two played a married couple in the “Father of the Bride” film and its sequel.
Keaton was last seen in, for the studios, the very disappointing “Mad Money,” also starring Queen Latifah and Katie Holmes. Martin will next star in “Pink Panther 2.”
Together, Keyser and Lippmann are currently writing “Food Fight,” and they previously rewrote “Here Comes the Bride.”
