According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress-writer Jennifer Westfeldt is reteaming with her Kissing Jessica Stein producer Brad Zions of Breakout Pictures on her script Ira & Abby: A Divorce Story
Director Robert Cary (Anything But Love) will start filming the neurotic screwball comedy, budgeted at around $2.5 million, on Nov. 12 in Manhattan.
As the title characters, Westfeldt and Chris Messina (Road) marry on the spur of the moment, leading to a chain of affairs involving their parents (Frances Conroy, Fred Willard and Robert Klein), exes and therapists. Additional casting is expected before the 26-day shoot, said Westfeldt, who executive produces with Jennifer Todd and Ilana Levine, along with co-producer Declan Baldwin. Westfeldt said she hopes to cast other members of the Stein cast as well as six celebrity therapists for cameos in the film's finale.
