Destination Wedding Nabbed by Aviron Pictures

Destination Wedding Nabbed by Aviron Pictures

Destination Wedding, the upcoming romantic comedy film reunion of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves, has been nabbed by Aviron Pictures, according to Deadline. This will be Reeves and Ryder’s fourth film together after Bram Stoker’s Dracula, A Scanner Darkly and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. Principal photography recently wrapped on the film in central California.

Keanu and Winona will star in Victor Levin’s (5 to 7) comedy Destination Wedding, from Levin’s original script. The film tells the story of 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.

Sunshine Pictures’ Gail Lyon is producing with Two Camel Films’ Elizabeth Dell. Robert Jones is producing for The Fyzz Facility, which is fully financing the film. Elevated’s Cassian Elwes and The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey are executive producing. Aviron Pictures has the North American rights in a deal that reportedly came after Bloom, who is selling offshore rights, showed buyers a five minute sizzle reel.

Principal photography on Destination Wedding wrapped earlier this summer in central California. A release date has yet to be announced.

“It Tolls For Thee”, Documentary Narrated by Winona Ryder

Back in 2003 Winona gave her voice to “The Day My God Died“, a documentary telling the stories of young girls whose lives have been shattered by the child sex slave trade. Now, she’s once again narrating “It Tolls For Thee“, the story of Mary Elmes, an Irishwoman who fled Franco’s forces in civil war-torn Spain, risked her life to save Jewish prisoners from the gas chambers and was jailed by the Nazis. Mary Elmes has become the first Irish person to be honoured as “Righteous Among the Nations” by Yad Vashem, Israel’s official memorial to Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

According to The Times, the film started to be screened in Dublin this past weekend.

Through an intriguing conspiracy of circumstance and courage, Irishwoman Mary Elmes found herself centre stage in two of the major theatres of warfare in the twentieth century. During the civil war in Spain, Mary Elmes took the children away from the bombs raining down from German and Italian bombers. Yet within a few years the world was plunged into an even greater conflict and the first industrial scale attempt to eradicate an entire people had begun. Once more, ‘doing nothing’ was not an option for Mary.

Narrated by Winona Ryder and featuring a wealth of personal archive as well as contributions from those who were spared the death camps because of Mary Elmes, this is a story of unadulterated goodness set in a world of seemingly all-consuming darkness.

More information about “Destination Wedding”

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:
