Douglas and Keaton go for comedy

Michael Douglas will star in new comedy And So It Goes

Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are set to star in a new comedy aimed at an older audience, titled And So It Goes.

The script has been written by Mark Andrus, who wrote Oscar-winning comedy As Good As It Gets, starring Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt, and the movie will be directed by Muriel's Wedding's PJ Hogan.

Michael will play a selfish and eccentric estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son abruptly drops off a granddaughter he never knew he had. With the help of his kind but firm neighbour, played by Diane, the estate agent learns to swap his selfish life for a completely different one.

Producer Alan Greisman said: "There's a large demographic and need for these kind of films as evidenced by box office successes such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, It's Complicated and Bucket List."

Filming is due to start in the spring.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
