Diane Keaton Out, Annette Bening in for ‘The Look of Love’

ALTLast year, we got word that Diane Keaton was joining Ed Harris for the romantic comedy The Look of Love—but now, Hollywood.com has learned that the movie recently swapped one legendary actress for another.

Stepping in to fill Keaton’s shoes is Annette Bening, who was most recently nominated for her work in the indie dramedy The Kids Are All Right. Bening will play Niki, a widow who falls for a new man who looks identical to her deceased husband. Harris is still on board the project, as well as writer/director Arie Posin. Funnyman Robin Williams has also joined the cast.

Posin’s previous film The Chumscrubber dabbled in serious issues while delivering on the laughs and The Look of Love sounds like could do more of the same. Even in her older years, Bening has continued to take risks and draw comedy out of the heaviest situations, making her a perfect fit for the role (we love Diane Keaton, but she doesn’t exactly have the same danger). The Look of Love is aiming for a Spring shoot and should find its way into theaters in 2013.

After a few years of working behind the scenes on movies and TV shows (and earning an IMDb page for bragging rights), Movies Editor Matt Patches made a hard right into the world of entertainment journalism. In 2009, Patches became the Associate Movies Editor of UGO.com, departing in 2010 to go rogue as a writer-for-hire. Patches covered movies and festivals for a number of outlets, including Movieline, MTV NextMovie, CinemaBlend, and Film School Rejects, before joining Hollywood.com as Movies Editor in 2011. He proudly names "Groundhog Day" as his favorite movie of all time.
