Cary Elwes Joins Untitled Ivan Reitman Comedy

     May 27, 2010

Cary Elwes has been tapped to star alongside Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher in Ivan Reitman’s upcoming romantic comedy.  Previously titled Friends with Benefits (until it gave up/lost the title to another comedy starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis), Variety says the film “centers on the question of whether two longterm friends can have a purely sexual relationship without falling in love.”  For the purposes of mainstream romantic comedies, I say the answer will turn out to be, “No.”

Per Variety, “Elwes plays a physician who works with Portman’s character and develops a flirtatious relationship.”  Elwes was most recently “seen” in Robert Zemeckis’ A Christmas Carol and will re-team with the director for a “re-imagining” of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
