Major Cast Announced for Garry Marshall’s ‘Valentine’s Day’

The Hollywood Reporter says that New Line Cinema intends a huge all-star cast for the new romantic-comedy Valentine's Day. Garry Marshall directs.

The current negotiating cast is Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel (not as a stripper, I'm guessing?), Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper and Ashton Kutcher.

Here's how the trade describes the plot outline-

-- Roberts is an army officer on leave from Iraq on a flight to L.A. Cooper, on the same flight, is a gay man whose lover is a closeted football player.

-- Kutcher is an owner of a flower shop who proposes to his girlfriend (Alba), only to realize he is in love with his close friend, played by Garner, who discovers her boyfriend is married.

-- MacLaine plays Roberts' mother, a happy retiree who reveals to her husband a long-ago affair.

-- Hathaway is an assistant working at the biggest talent agency in town and dating a mailroom assistant; Biel is a publicist unlucky in love (is there any other kind?) who has no date on Valentine's Day.

The gay football player, MacLaine's husband, the mailroom worker, a talent agent and a young boy looking to buy some flowers for his crush are major roles that info has yet to be released.
