‘Destination Wedding’ New Trailer

The first trailer for Destination Wedding, reuniting Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, was released earlier today.

Director and writer Victor Levin tells PEOPLE he was just as excited as everyone else to get these two back together.

“As a fan, I have such longstanding love for both of them and for their work, so it feels really good to see them together again,” Levin says. “And as a filmmaker, I have the benefit of their having known each other for so long. They have superb natural chemistry together, which is so important for a love story.”

Ryder’s Lindsay and Reeves’ Frank arrive at a destination wedding only to discover they’re the guests no one knows where to put, and are therefore stuck together. Though they hate each other at first, the pessimistic duo start to bond throughout the days-long affair.

Keanu and Winona are stars for a reason: they have huge talent and skill, and they work very hard,” Levin says. But they also keep it fun. They rehearsed their dialogue together, helped each other, made everybody laugh — they were delightful. They are the movie. It’s about their characters and the healing power of love and laughter.”

Destination Wedding hits theaters August 24.

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.

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:
