EXCLUSIVE: Millennium Films has acquired My Owner’s Wedding, a Robert Cary and Jonathan Tolins script, and the producer-distributor is in early talks with Jessica Biel to play one of the leads. My Owner’s Wedding is a romantic comedy about two eligible young women, the man both of them want, and his dog. The latter will go to any length to make sure his owner ends up with the right girl.
Cary directed and co-wrote Anything But Love and directed Ira & Abby and Save Me. Tolins co-wrote New Line’s Martian Child and Twilight Of The Golds, based on his Broadway play. He also wrote multiple episodes of Queer As Folk and has written for the Academy Awards and the Tonys.
Cary and Tolins will produce with Mark Gill. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Alan Gasmer will be executive producers. Millennium heads to Cannes with The Expendables 2, Playing The Field, and the Lee Daniels-directed The Paperboy. The latter is an official festival selection starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Nicole Kidman.
