We’ve got a couple of “promising duos” casting stories to report this afternoon.  First up, Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are attached to star in the comedy And So It Goes….  Per Deadline, Douglas will play “a self-absorbed and eccentric” realtor who is thrown for a loop when his estranged son saddles him with a granddaughter Douglas’ character never knew.  He enlists the help of his “determined and loveable neighbor,” played by Keaton, who pulls him out of his selfish life.  Mark Andrus (As Good As It Gets) wrote the script and PJ Hogan (My Best Friend’s Wedding) is set to direct, with production slated to get underway in the spring.

Hit the jump for news concerning the possible pairing of Ewan McGregor and Kate Hudson.

Additionally, Ewan McGregor is poised to star in the romantic comedy Born to Be King.  The mistaken identity pic centers on “an extra who has an uncanny resemblance to a movie star, and a Hollywood starlet who’s at war with the movie star, but begins to fall for the extra.”  The Wrap reports that Kate Hudson is in talks to take on the Hollywood starlet role in what sounds like a promising team-up.  McGregor is unendingly charming, so he seems a perfect fit for the extra role.  Peter Capaldi (Strictly Sinatra) is directing with production eyeing a January 2013 start at Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
