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.
EW has published today the first promotional image of Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder in the upcoming Destination Wedding. Enjoy!
Principal photography on Destination Wedding wrapped earlier this summer in central California. A release date has yet to be announced.

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:
Exciting news has surfaced this week about a new project for Winona. She was spot on set in San Luis Obispo shooting a new movie with long time friend Keanu Reeves.
A video from a scene shot at the San Luis Obispo Regional Airport has also been released, and you can find some more videos published at The Tribune.
No further information about the movie has surfaced, but we’ll keep you informed.
