Zellweger/Connick Jr. to co-star in romantic comedy
Posted 08.30.07 by reelz
Variety is reporting that Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. are negotiating to co-star in a romantic comedy called Chilled in Miami, about a Miami businesswoman who gets transferred to rural Minnesota.
Our prediction of the Chilled storyline: Renee is a high-powered Miami suit who finds out she has to move to East Bufu, MN. This will of course be during the winter, so we can contrast the hot, fun, glamorous, Latin-flavored Miami with the cold, snowy, 'conservative' Minnesota prairie (note: Minnesota is actually a blue state, but it won't be in this movie).
She gets there and she is not pleased. She is surrounded by wild-rice-chewing farm rubes. She won't have any cold-weather wear, which will be fodder for jokes.
Her neighbor/mailman/other device to bring him repeatedly into her life is Harry Connick Jr., and although she is initially snooty to him, she soon realizes he spends his long winter nights pumping up his pecs in his home gym/playing the piano and love blossoms--probably during a snowstorm.
She realizes Minnesota isn't so bad after all, changes her name to Swenson, learns how to trap moose, and lives happily ever after.
You know we're right.
