Romance and Cigarettes: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mary-Louise Parker and Christopher Walken have signed on to star with James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Mandy Moore and Kate Winslet in United Artists' musical comedy Romance and Cigarettes, to be directed by John Turturro.

Production begins this month in the Big Apple on the film, which also was penned by Turturro.

"Romance" follows a cheating blue-collar husband who is forced to choose between his sexy mistress and his put-upon wife. According to the film's producers, "Romance" is "punctuated by lip-synched performances of popular songs" by artists including Irving Berlin, Nick Cave, Connie Francis, Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield and Bruce Springsteen.
