Felicity Huffman Wants to Do New Orleans Romantic Comedy

Moonstruck screenwriter John Patrick Shanley is currently working on a script titled The Accordian that may — hopefully — star Felicity Huffman in the lead part. Not only that, it's also a romantic comedy taking place in post-Katrina New Orleans. LA.com has the scoop:

[Director/producer Norman Jewison] says The Accordion is "based on an Italian film called Bread and Tulips about a woman who has been married for a number of years and has really never seen anything or had a chance to be on her own. She gets stranded in the South on a golf tour and ends up alone. It follows her change in life and experiences.

It's a very funny, touching romantic comedy. In the Italian film the setting was Venice, but we're changing Venice to New Orleans post-Katrina. Every film has a place and an ambiance, and it's very important because the setting and where it takes place is part of the story, so the city is very involved in the film."

As I've said before, I love me some Felicity Huffman and think she can do just about anything. I certainly hope she gets to play this Accordian.
