Director Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai, Defiance) has tapped Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway to star in LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS. 20th Century Fox and New Regency are financing the film which will begin shooting on September 21st 2009. Scott Stuber, Edward Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz and Pieter Jan Brugge are producing the film. Charles Randolph wrote the screenplay which has been rewritten by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz.
I've been able to confirm that this project is the former UNTITLED CHARLES RANDOLPH which was featured in the 2007's Black List.
Here's the synopsis:
Jamie Reidy (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a charmer and a talker who is never still. He does not live up to his family's expectations of him or to the successes of his siblings. Jamie jumps from job to job, and eventually finds his niche in the pharmaceutical sales world. It isn't an easy start for him, until he is able to use his polished skills with women to sell the new drug, Viagra, released by his company Pfizer.
Meanwhile Maggie Murdock (Anne Hathaway) is a pretty young woman with art-girl hair, a pugnacious manner and warm eyes. She consults Dr. Knight regarding her Parkinson's disease, while Jamie pretends to be his intern. Against her better judgment, she falls in love with Jamie.
i'd like to see them working together again.even though that's not the reunion i was hoping would happen once :((
