Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway to Star in Overcrowded "Valentine's Day" 


Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper and Ashton Kutcher are in talks to star in "Valentine's Day."

Director Garry Marshall is set to helm the film which is about five interconnecting stories set during a Valentine's Day in Los Angeles.

It's like "Crash" minus the drama plus romantic comedy equals "Valentine's Day."

Here's the various story lines according to The Hollywood Reporter:

-- Roberts is an army officer on leave from Iraq on a flight to L.A. Cooper, on the same flight, is a gay man whose lover is a closeted football player.

-- Kutcher is an owner of a flower shop who proposes to his girlfriend (Alba), only to realize he is in love with his close friend, played by Garner, who discovers her boyfriend is married.

-- MacLaine plays Roberts' mother, a happy retiree who reveals to her husband a long-ago affair.

-- Hathaway is an assistant working at the biggest talent agency in town and dating a mailroom assistant; Biel is a publicist unlucky in love (is there any other kind?) who has no date on Valentine's Day.

And there are more major roles left to be cast! There's the gay football player, MacLaine's husband, the mailroom worker, a talent agent and a young boy looking to give his crush some flowers.

Katherine Fugate wrote the first draft, while Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein scripted the latest.
