Guest list set for gay nuptials comedy

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - A gay wedding sets the stage for chaos in the indie screwball comedy “For Better or for Worse,” from director Joshua Tunick and producer-star Brad Rowe.

Chad Allen, Janeane Garofalo, Rebecca Gayheart, Soleil Moon Frye, Patrick Muldoon and Rowe are attached to star in the story of a grounded pair of grooms whose families threaten to go off the rails at their nuptials.

Frye will play the lesbian minister presiding over the ceremony at the home of one groom’s mother (Ruta Lee). The guests include the jilted ex of one of the grooms and his new beau (Muldoon and Allen), a closeted neighbor (Stanley Kamel), a wallflower sister (Gayheart), a family-man brother (Rowe) and his nanny (Garofalo), who has a bombshell to drop.

Eric Kops, Rowe and Tunick are writing and producing the project based on an original idea by Kops. After rehearsals, the film will have a six-day digital shoot with multiple cameras in the summer.

“The actors will all be very much part of the process,” Rowe said. “During rehearsals and on the set, their improvisation will help us expand the story.”
