Zac Efron and Halle Berry are also in negotiations to star in this romantic comedy, which already includes Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Abigail Breslin, Sofía Vergara and Lea Michele.
Much like Garry Marshall's Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve follows several characters as they make their way through the year-end holiday in New York City. Sarah Jessica Parker will play the mother of Abigail Breslin's character, who is too clingy with her daughter.
If Zac Efron signs on, he will play a bike messenger who tries to keep a promise to Michelle Pfeiffer's character by scoring tickets to a big party. Halle Berry is in talks to play a caterer who runs into an old lover.
Garry Marshall was originally set to start shooting this month, although production has been pushed to February 1 in New York City. Second unit photography will still take place over the actual holiday.
