Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder together in a rom-com?!! Stranger things have happened.
The pair, who previously starred together in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and A Scanner Darkly, are reuniting for a dark rom-com befitting of their on-screen personas.
Destination Wedding, directed by Victor Lyon, stars Reeves and Ryder as two unhappy, wholly unpleasant wedding guests who connect over their mutual misery. In spite of their better judgement, they find themselves falling for each other.
“Keanu and Winona bring a lot of history and chemistry to their roles, which adds a wonderful dimension to their performances and their dynamic,” said producer Gail Lyon.
The Fyzz Facility is set to fully finance and produce the project along with Gail Lyon, Elizabeth Dell, and Cassian Elwes.
Reeves was last seen in his summer’s John Wick: Chapter 2 and the Netflix project To the Bone, while Ryder will appear in the highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things on Oct. 27.
