Mila Kunis & Michael Keaton To Star In Comedy ‘Goodrich’

Mila Kunis and Michael Keaton are set to star together in a comedy titled Goodrich. Set in contemporary Los Angeles during the holidays, the film tells the story of art dealer Andy Goodrich, a man whose life is upended when his younger second wife leaves him and enters a 90-day rehab program while also threatening divorce.

Goodrich then takes charge of their nine-year-old twins, thrusting him into the world of modern parenthood for which he is deeply unprepared. With his career falling by the wayside, he leans on his grown and pregnant daughter Grace for support, and ultimately evolves into the father Grace never had.

Hallie Meyers-Shyer (Home Again) is on board as writer-director. Jason Cloth and Dave Caplan‘s C2 Motion Picture Group are financing the project and will produce alongside Daniela Taplin Lundberg (The Kids Are All Right) of Stay Gold Features and Kevin Mann (Together, Together). Amy Pascal will also serve as an executive producer.

Meyers-Shyer is the daughter of Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer, who each made a number of charming comedies; sometimes apart, and sometimes together. Her only film thus far, 2017’s Home Again, was a likeable romantic comedy in the vein of her mother’s films, so if the filmmaking genes have indeed been passed on, she should be a good fit for Goodrich.

It will help that she’ll have Kunis and Keaton as her leads, two actors very experienced in comedies, although both have been seen in more serious projects recently. Kunis was most recently seen in Netflix drama Luckiest Girl Alive, while Keaton is fresh off his multi-award winning role in Hulu series Dopesick.

Additional “strong” casting is reportedly in the works for Goodrich, according to Deadline. No production start date has been set.
