Tatiana Siegel of Variety:
Renée Zellweger (pictured) and Harry Connick, Jr.. are in negotiations to team in Gold Circle Films' fish-out-of-water comedy "Chilled in Miami." Danish writer-director Jonas Elmer is aboard to helm.
Penned by Ken Rance and C. Jay Cox, script centers on a Miami businesswoman who's transferred to the sticks of Minnesota.
Project, formerly titled "32 and Single," was originally set up at Universal Pictures. Gold Circle has a first-look deal at U, which will likely distribute.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in January in Miami and Winnepeg...
Zellweger will film New Line Cinema's Ed Harris-helmed Western "Appaloosa," opposite Viggo Mortensen, in the fall before segueing to "Chilled."
Connick Jr. most recently appeared onscreen in the Lions Gate thriller "Bug." Elmer, who directed the Danish-language drama "Let's Get Lost," most recently helmed the 2005 comedy "Nynne," which was dubbed the Danish "Bridget Jones"
Zellweger has done her fair share of romantic comedies over the years...I doubt she'll do anything to screw this up.
Connick Jr., of course, does the acting thing in between singing gigs. He has already been pegged as a leading man.
Gee, given the structure of the genre, it's not hard to figure out how this one's going to play out.
