Sam Mendes' "Relationship Comedy" Gets A Title — And Allison Janney!

Sam Mendes' "Relationship Comedy" Gets A Title — And Allison Janney!

Update: As of Dec. 9, this movie is officially titled Away We Go.

This project already had so much going for it: Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) directing, a script by Dave Eggers and his wife Vendela Vida, John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph playing the lead characters and Toni Collette recently cast in a supporting role. Now, the previously untitled "relationship comedy" has gotten a titleand Allison Janney!

In the tentatively titled This Must Be the Place, Janney will play "a loud, brassy, decidedly un-PC woman who admittedly has a few screws loose. She reunites with a former employee in Phoenix, where the expectant mother/employee (Rudolph) begins a tour of the country with her husband (Krasinski) to find the best place to raise their child."

Now, while I still can't wait for Mendes' adaptation of Revolutionary Road starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, I'm also insanely curious to see how he does with this comedic material and phenomenal cast. Also in Janney's future is a role in an Eddie Murphy movie A Thousand Words in which she'll play Murphy's boss, "a savvy, money-grubbing head of a literary agency."

Carmen Ejogo and Cheryl Hines are also in the film. It starts filming in Connecticut later this month and probably go around the country, Phoenix included. Some industry reports say that John's and Maya's characters are married while other put them as only dating. Also, the casting site for the extras have the film's title as "Farlanders" so might have to wait a little bit longer for a confirmed title. I really do love the cast so far. :) A great group of women and a not too shabby lead actor. Heh... ;)

Is it okay that anytime I see Allison Janney, I think of "10 Things I Hate About You" which makes me think of Heath Ledger, sadly. I love her though! She was partly why I started watching "The West Wing" and she was excellent in "Juno". She's does some great things! Can't wait for this movie!!! Awesome cast!
