The script must be lacking jokes about cat nipples.

Robert De Niro, who was most recently seen taking a needle to Little Bobby, has all but killed Jonathan Demme‘s Honeymoon With Harry. Demme has walked from the project after De Niro repeatedly balked at the film which, by every indicator, seems like a hit.

The script be Paul Haggis (and re-written by Rachel Getting Married‘s Jenny Lumet) has long been considered one of the best unmade films, and is loved by both New Line Cinema and star Bradley Cooper. And do you have any idea how hard it is to get Bradley Cooper to love you? His wild heart cannot be tamed.

But De Niro is simply not interested which has proven to have a ripple effect on the entire production. Cooper doesn’t want to appear disloyal to De Niro (who can blame him after the master thesp’s turn in Rocky & Bullwinkle), and Demme doesn’t want to make the film under negative circumstances. Maybe if Demme were to write in a scene where Ben Stiller accidentally serves poop at dinner or one where Billy Crystal prescribes him a drug that causes extreme cottonmouth and zany side effects, he’d have De Niro’s commitment. Until that time, however, Kevin James needs someone to play a stern judge in a movie about a fat lawyer who falls down a lot. And then Queen Latifah is all like, “Awwwww, Hell no!” (Deadline)

‘Rachel Getting Married’ Duo To Reunite http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rachel-getting-married-duo-to-reunite/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rachel-getting-married-duo-to-reunite/#comments Wed, 02 Mar 2011 19:48:45 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=31191 Strap on your laughing caps!

Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married is one of the most acclaimed movies of the last 10 years. And that is in no small part due to Demme’s writing partner Jenny Lumet, whose script for Rachel provides the crucial framework for Demme’s improv-heavy movie. Now Demme and Lumet are reuniting for what looks to be another feel-good smash:

“The story is about an alcoholic who reforms his ways after falling in love with a girl, only to relapse after she dies shortly before their wedding. Drowning his sorrows on what would have been their honeymoon, he crosses paths with her father, who is there to scatter his daughter’s ashes on her favorite beach.”

Sounds hilarious! Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper have been previously connected to the project but it’s not known whether they’re still in.  And it’s supposed to be called Honeymoon With Harry but I’m guessing it could be changed to something wacky along the lines of Bananas or Animal Crackers.
