New Line must have some serious faith in their upcoming romantic comedy anthology, Valentine’s Day, because they’re already planning a spin-off called New Year’s Eve. According to Variety, VD director Garry Marshall is expected to return to helm NYE, with producers Mike Karz and Wayne Rice returning along with screenwriter Katherine Fugate. New Year’s Eve would include some characters from Valentine’s Day and presumably follow these characters on Flag Day. Possibly Arbor Day. New Year’s Eve is expected to shoot at the end of this year for a late 2011 release.
Valentine’s Day has a massive cast featuring Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts, and Taylor Swift.

A diverse group of Los Angelenos navigate their way through romance and heartbreak over the course of one Valentine’s Day. Couples and singles experience the pinnacles and pitfalls of finding, keeping or ending relationships in a day in the life of love.
