'Morning Glory' Trailer

News regarding the teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' Super 8 has been circling the web with authority ever since the theatrical release of Iron Man 2. However, Abrams, working under his production house Bad Robot, also has another project in the works: Morning Glory. This is a romantic comedy starring Rachel McAdams as a television producer who is hired to revive a struggling morning show by dealing with the antics of hosts Mike (Harrison Ford) and Colleen (Diane Keaton). Patrick Wilson will also co-star as a possible love interest for the McAdams character.

A romantic comedy may seem like uncharted territory for Abrams, but the project also has other credible filmmakers on board. Roger Michell, who made Notting Hill, is set to direct the film from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada). The film, which was shot mostly in New York, is set to be released on November 12th by Paramount Pictures. You can watch the embedded trailer below, or see it in HD over at Apple.

The trailer is slightly misleading and I won't spoil it for anyone (I read the script) but Morning Glory is not a romantic comedy at all. Patrick Wilson plays McAdams boyfriend at the beginning of the movie but let's say something happens between them and it's what drives the movie's plot.

@ Castor: Thanks for sharing. I appreciate you not spoiling the film, but it is interesting to know that the film isn't necessarily a romantic comedy. The trailer certainly makes it look like one.

Makes sense considering what Ford tells McAdams toward the end of the trailer.

Anyone else thinking Supporting Actor nod for Ford?

Danny King said...

@ Fitz: I wouldn't doubt it. The dramatic moment Ford delivers near the end is really eye-opening.

Hmm, sounds a little like Network in some ways.
