New No Strings Attached Featurette Interviews Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, and Ivan Reitman
01.21.11 by Ryan
In the latest featurette for the romantic comedy No Strings Attached, director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Stripes) admits that he worked with screenwriter Elizabeth Meriwether on the script "for three years." It must have been depressing, then, to find that there was another romantic comedy with the same plot called Friends with Benefits.
The movie stars Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman as two friends who decide to add physical intimacy to their friendship and avoid the pitfalls of a romantic relationship. The featurette discusses the script, casting, and working with Reitman, who has directed a comedy or two in his day.
No Strings Attached opens Jan. 21. Greta Gerwig, Mindy Kaling, and Kevin Kline co-star.
