Over at Apple, Paramount has debuted the official trailer for the J.J. Abrams produced comedy Morning Glory. It’ll be attached to prints of Sex and the City 2 this weekend but why wait? You can get an early look at the comedy project that reunites J.J. Abrams and Harrison Ford. Wait…what? That’s right, before the success of TV’s Alias, Lost and Star Trek, Abrams was an up-and-coming screenwriter. One of his writing and producing credits was 1992’s Regarding Henry which starred Harrison Ford. Eighteen years later they’re back together again.
Morning Glory is a news-oriented comedy and it stars Ford, Rachel McAdams, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Diane Keaton, and 50 Cent as himself. Originally, it was supposed to be a summer release at the end of July, but has been since pushed back to the fall. Take a look and see if this will be like all the cookie-cutter comedies we’ve come to expect from Hollywood, or if J.J. Abrams saw enough potential in this workplace comedy to want to produce it.
In Morning Glroy, Rachael McAdams plays a hotshot television producer who must revive a struggling morning show, despite having to butt heads with feuding co-hosts (Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford).
Sitting in the director’s chair is Roger Mitchell, who gave us the romantic comedy hit Notting Hill. The screenplay was written by Aline Brosh McKenna who previously wrote The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses. Paramount hopes audiences will enjoy the story in Morning Glory when it opens in theaters on November 12, 2010.
