Streisand, Rogen Road Trip Comedy Finally Gets Greenlight
During the summer, news initially broke that Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen were bizarrely set to star in an upcoming road trip comedy called My Mother's Curse. Even with the crazy name recognition though, the project simmered for months as Paramount was for whatever reason reluctant to move forward. Not anymore. This is officially a go with both of the actors still set to play the leads.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Proposal helmer Anne Fletcher is on board to direct and Cars writer Dan Fogelman has completed the script. The basic premise is a loose adaptation of Fogelman's real life relationship with his mother, and it follows an inventor who sets off on a road trip with his mother to simultaneously sell his new idea and hook her back up with a lost love. Longtime Rogen partner Evan Goldberg along with John Goldwyn and SNL headman Lorne Michaels will produce. Production is slated to begin this Spring, but no official release date has been announced.
I have no more information than you do, but if I had to wager a guess, I would say this greenlight took forever largely based on demographics. Who is this movie targeted to? Is Streisand signing up for a raunchy comedy, or is Rogen down for a heartwarming faux-RomCom? We'll let you know once we figure out what the hell this vehicle actually is.
