Michelle Monaghan Joins Phillips’ Due Date

18 09 2009


Playing the wife that Robert Downey Jr. needs to get home to before she gives birth, Michelle Monaghan has been cast in Todd Phillips’ follow up to The HangoverDue Date, also starring Zach Galifianakis. This is great news for two reasons:

1) Any news regarding this movie is good news. Phillips has a proven track record and, unlike just about every other comedic director out there, he is as “can’t miss” as you can get.

2) The film rejoins Monaghan and Downey Jr. who had incredible chemistry in one of the best and certainly the most underrated film of the past decade, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Yes, the film is essentially a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. But here is why it is okay: it is not a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Phillips will no-doubt put his own special spin on the story and with the players involved, who in their right mind would stop him?
