Kyle Bornheimer Joins Nuptial Comedies BACHELORETTE and THE BIG WEDDING

     August 17, 2011


Kyle Bornheimer has emerged as a reliably charming comedic performer over the past couple years.  After a slew of TV guest spots, my first long-term introduction was in Worst Week, a remake of a British series about the farce-filled days leading up to a couple’s wedding.  The character was a nice showcase for Bornheimer’s skills, and so he’s returning to that well for two new feature projects, albeit in less prominent roles.  The first is Bachelorette, and indie comedy led by Kirsten Dunst.  The second is The Big Wedding, an ensemble comedy featuring the likes of Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, and Topher Grace.

More on both projects after the jump.

kirsten_dunst_image__2_THR reports Bornheimer is shooting Bachelorette right now with Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, Casey Wilson, and Adam Scott.  The script by Leslye Headland (Terriers) centers on “three friends [who] are asked to be bridesmaids at a wedding of a woman they used to ridicule back in high school.”  Headland is also directing the New York production for producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.  The cast is really promising, basically made up of scene stealers and Kirsten Dunst.  I have high hopes for Bachelorette.

The Big Wedding cast is even higher in profile, though with iffier prospects.  Written and directed by Justin Zacham (The Bucket List), the story centers on “a long-divorced couple (De Niro and Keaton) forced to pretend that they are still happily married at their son’s wedding.”  After he wraps on Bachelorette, Bornheimer will hop over to the Big Wedding shoot (also in New York) to play Heigl’s estranged husband.  He really upsets Heigl when he shows up to the wedding, so I assume he’s the protagonist of the story.  The Big Wedding is scheduled for release on October 19, 2012.
