It looks like Garner has permanently retired her sai and arousingly tight leather to stick with romantic comedy. Coming off of Catch and Release, Garner has agreed to star in a romantic remake.
Jennifer Garner for Christmas in Connecticut
Warner Bros has picked up Jennifer Garner to star in the remake of Christmas in Connecticut. The 1945 holiday classic was directed by Peter Godfrey and featured Barbara Stanwyck, Dennis Morgan and Sydney Greenstreet.
No writer or director have been chosen.
Christmas in Connecticut revolves around a cooking writer -- the Martha Stewart of her time -- whom the world believes to living on a cozy farm in Connecticut with her husband and baby. In reality, she's a single woman living on her own in New York. The ruse is discovered when a holiday meal is planned at her fake farm.
Arnold Schwarzenegger took a shot at the story back in 1992 when he directed a remake for television. Starring Dyan Cannon, Kris Kristofferson and Tony Curtis, Arnold's version had the cooking diva as the hostess of her own homemaking show.
The project will reunite Garner with 13 Going on 30 producing partners Susan Arnold and Donna Roth. Though no director/writer has been selected as of yet, Warner Bros has some time considering that Garner will enter production for Juno later this month in Vancouver.
