And finally some information about Destination Wedding surfaced on entertainment media. Deadline published today about the movie – that just wrapped filming!
Keanu Reeves is reuniting with Winona Ryder to star in the upcoming romantic comedy Destination Wedding, written and directed by Victor Levin (5 to 7). The pic centers on two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests, both pariahs at this affair, who develop a mutual affection despite themselves. But to act on those feelings would be to trust hope over experience, a foolish choice indeed.
Gail Lyon of Sunshine Pictures and Two Camel Films’ Elizabeth Dell are producing along with Robert Jones for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film. Elevated’s Cassian Elwes and The Fyzz’s Wayne Marc Godfrey are executive producing. Filming just wrapped in central California.
Yesterday we published about Winona shooting a new film with Keanu Reeves in San Luis Obispo. Today we discovered the movie is “Destination Wedding” and new information has been posted at SLO Tribune post on Facebook.
According to the thread, a casting call for extras has been published (and its now deleted) containing the film’s name and synopsys.
Destination Wedding is a story of the triumph of hope over experience. Frank and Lindsay, two emotionally broken people, must attend a destination wedding at a vineyard in Paso Robles. They meet and, over the course of the weekend and against all odds, find themselves drawn to one another even as they are repulsed by one another. In the end, they must each make a choice: gamble again on love and on the theory that life can be a positive experience, or remain safe, aloof and alone.
Also, a new on set picture has been published on Instagram:
Hello friends! Today it happened in San Diego the Stranger Things panel. Winona didn’t attend the panel (booo!) but David Harbour was there, following all kids.
Some informations about the next season (directly from /Film):
Noah Schnapp‘s character Will Byers has returned from the Upside Down and is showing a bit more bravery. We will learn how he has been affected from his time on the other side. Dacre Montgomery‘s character Billy is the new human antagonist for the second season. He mentioned he hopes he can be “scary enough” alongside the monster bad guy(s). Paul Reiser‘s character Dr. Owens is the newest addition to Hawkins lab. He comes in from the government to clean up Dr. Martin Brenner’s mess.
Here’s the Season 2 plot synopsys:
It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demagorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
In 1953, MKUltra came to Hawkins, Indiana and began experimentation. In 1979, Police Chief Jim Hopper returns to Hawkins. On November 6, 1983 a young boy named Will Byers vanished. Two days later, Barbara Holland also vanished. A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.
A trailer was also released, and you can watch it below:

Stranger Things season 2 premieres on October 27, 2017.
The 69th annual Emmy Awards were announced today and as we was expecting (and hoping), Stranger Things scored a Best Drama nod alongside other newcomers as Westworld, The Crown, This Is Us and Handmaid’s Tale. They all will compete against veterans House of Cards and Better Call Saul.
Stranger Things also picked up an impressive 18 nominations, including Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. Milly Bobby Brown received a very deserved nod as Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, David Harbour as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and Shannon Purser, who plays the fan favorite Barb, received an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. While we’re rolling eyes for the lack of Winona in this list, we’re really happy for all the Emmy love for Stranger Things.
The Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 5 p.m. PT. on CBS.
