‘Catwoman’ Writer to Produce Generic-Sounding Rom-Com

By  · Published on July 1st, 2009

You probably don’t know the name John Rogers, and if you do, he’s probably your dentist or the guy that mows your lawn or something. The John Rogers I speak of is the brilliant creative mind that gave us the screenplays for The Core and Catwoman. He even got a story credit on the first Transformers! Huzzah!

Apparently, this genius of literary note is set to produce a romantic comedy from (long-time listener) first-time writer Jonathan Abrams called The Wedding Doctor.

At first glance, it may seem as though the story will involve someone doing surgery on three-tiered cakes, but The Hollywood Reporter informs us that the plot ill actually focus on a woman who gets cold feet before her wedding, only to turn to a wedding doctor to investigate as to whether she’s marrying the right man.

I’ll give you three guesses as to whether she is, and the first two don’t count.

That’s right – you guessed it. The wedding doctor himself falls in love with her! With a twist!

I personally see this as Debra Messing’s chance to re-enter the film world alongside, oh, let’s say John Stamos just for kicks.

Anyway, if sometime next year you’re in the mood to watch a montage where a man and woman do flirtatious stuff that builds into an awkward almost-kiss while they’re supposed to be exploring her feelings for her fiance, this one sounds like it’s right up your alley.

What do you think? Why?
