Gwyneth Paltrow, Leighton Meester, and Tim McGraw to Star in Love Don't Let Me Down 2009-12-03 04:30:00

Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester Are Goin' Country

Looks like Leighton Meester is ready to show off her pipes on the big screen: She and Gwyneth Paltrow are both set to star in Love Don't Let Me Down, a drama about country singers. Paltrow plays an industry has-been who meets a young, up-and-comer (Garrett Hedlund). They team up to go on tour with Paltrow's on-screen husband (Tim McGraw) and a former beauty queen (Meester); drama and hookups inevitably ensue. Shana Feste wrote the screenplay and will direct; Tobey Maguire is on board to produce via Maguire Entertainment.

This is definitely a step up for Meester (no offense directed toward The Roommate), but I'm not exactly bursting with excitement over this one. Sure, Paltrow has a sweet voice in Duets, but to carry a country tune alongside Tim McGraw? Let's just say I'm interested to hear more.

I was fortunate to be a part of this movie. You have no idea what you are talking about. Gwyneth did a fantastic job. Every take. Even after a thirteen hour day. She can sing as well as act. Leighton and Garrett also did a great job. Mr. McGraw does not sing in the movie but his acting is just as wonderful in this movie as in the Blind Side. These are very kind and talented people and I am honored to have worked with them. Basically, you don't know squat.
