A Cameron Crowe Update

Dunst, Kutcher Traveling to Crowe’s ‘Elizabethtown’
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Kirsten Dunst and Ashton Kutcher are attached to star in Cameron Crowe’s next project, “Elizabethtown,” which is slated to begin production in the first quarter of 2004 in Oregon and Kentucky.
DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures are in final talks to finance the film, which is being produced by Crowe’s Vinyl Films and Tom Cruise’s C/W Prods. Cruise previously starred in Crowe’s “Vanilla Sky” and “Jerry Maguire.”
“Elizabethtown,” which Crowe also wrote, is described as a rich ensemble comedy with two central leads. The project is intended to be a love letter to the resilience of the life force and is a story of an unexpected romance that develops against the backdrop of a Southern patriarch’s hilariously elaborate memorial. Like Crowe’s previous works, music will figure prominently in the film.
A portion of the filming will also occur in October before resuming in the new year.
