The Doctor Is In

So, educated guessers are figuring that Keanu is currently working in L.A. on the "Untitled Nancy Meyers Project". At least this little blurb from this article about Jack would indicate that filming is underway:

"Nicholson, who is currently shooting a Nancy Meyers-directed comedy about a music mogul who falls for his girlfriend's mother, declined interview requests after the nominations."

ComingSoon.net has a fairly decent synopsis of the whole thing, including this plot summary:

"Academy AwardŽ winners Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton star in a sparkling and sophisticated romantic comedy from acclaimed writer/director Nancy Meyers ("What Women Want," "Father of the Bride") which proves that in matters of the heart, sometimes you can teach an old playboy new tricks. Harry Langer (Nicholson) is a hip-hop music mogul with a libido much younger than his years. He has the world on a string -- and a string of beautiful young girlfriends to prove it. During a romantic rendezvous with his newest girlfriend, Marin, at her mother's Hamptons beach house, Harry's develops chest pains and eventually winds up being nursed by Marin's reluctant mother, Erica Barry (Keaton) -- a successful, divorced New York playwright. In the process, Harry develops more heart pangs - the romantic kind - for Erica, a woman who is right for him in every way. However, some habits die hard, and when Harry hesitates to pursue Erica, his charming thirtysomething doctor becomes smitten with her. Harry undergoes a true change of heart when he fights to win Erica back.

The "thirtysomething doctor" is the role that Keanu has been cast in.

I'm not really familiar with Ms. Meyers work. Basically I'd rather lick a nine-volt battery than watch "What Women Want". I think I may have been exposed to the remake of "Parent Trap" at some point when I was sick in bed and couldn't find the remote.
So of the three films that Mr. Reeves will be (reportedly) working on this year, I'm least excited about this one. But who knows, I was sure I was going to hate Hardball and was happily proven wrong...

One thing that fugs the buck outta me is the whole "Untitled Nancy Meyers Project" thing.
How hard can it be to title a movie?

Hospitality Suite?

The Doctor, His Patient, His Wife, Her Mother?

Hearts of the Affair? (I actually fear that it will be some lame play on words like this)

Jack is going play a hip-hop music mogul? OH! the possibilties....

Doctah Playah Hatah, anyone?
OK, that one sucks.

I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I am happy that Keanu is getting to work with Jack. And Frances McDormand, too. I love her.

Maybe it's because I'm old, but I'm looking forward to this new one (Matrices aside) the most. Anyone who had anything to do with Private Benjamin is ok in my book.

I saw Private Benjamin too. Now I feel old.

It's been awhile since I've stopped by here. Life showing up big time. Cramming for the last 2 weeks of study (Friday was my last day, still trying to settle into the new place and of course now I have the job search to look forward too.

Anyway, hope all is well with you.

Dammit krix

You do make me laugh...

Jack as a hip-hop-music mogul????


I think I just suffocated, and died laughing. You've GOT to be kidding me *snigger*

Yeah, I'll admit I saw and liked Private Benjamin as well. I'm sure this movie will be good, you can hardly go wrong with Jack, Diane and Frances. I don't think I've ever seen Amanda Peet in anything.

Loved PBenjamin and yes I got quite a few laughs out of What Women Want, so I'm REALLY looking forward to this one the most.(of the new ones he's working on, not the sequels) Especially with such a tremendous cast.

The "untitled" part bugs me too, but it bugs me more that it doesn't sound like Keanu gets the girl. That would be a change, but what would be a bigger better change is someone who goes for their heart notwithstanding the fact that the other person is younger instead of settling for the person that some outdated social sexist more' says she should go for.

Am I reading too much into this?

Sorry I am stepping off my soapbox now.


Anybody see 40 carats with Liv Ullman?


Agree about the 9 volt battery. I wanted to slap Mel Gibson AND Helen Hunt.

I actually kinda liked WWW, almost (i admit) against my will. but anyway, as long as the doctor is IN, i'm all over this Nicholson/ Keaton/ Reeves coolness.

Nice pic - makes you want to put on a paper dress, doesn't it?

Krix, I can just so see Ke being the absolutely most fantabulous doctor on the planet. "Dr. Feel Good", paging "Dr. Feel Good" (referring fondly to Keanu, of course! :)
