Well, for Love and Other Drugs, that is. Brokeback Mountain couple Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are in talks to reunite for an adaptation of Jamie Reidy's nonfiction book Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman. The director is Edward Zwick who created Once and Again and who directed Legends of the Fall, Courage Under Fire, The Last Samurai, and Defiance among others. Here's more:
Reidy was a drug rep for Pfizer in the late 1990s who eventually wrote a memoir that shined a light on the practices of the pharmaceutical industry. Gyllenhaal will play the salesman, who begins a relationship with a woman who has Parkinson's (Hathaway) while on one of his sales calls. Their love story plays out in the political and social context of the time.
Aww. This one's going to break my heart a little bit, I can already feel it. And I really like these two together onscreen — what about you?
