They’ve both been (literally or figuratively) screwed by George Clooney onscreen, and now they’re combining forces on a project that should let either take more of a center stage. According to THR, Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga will be leading the romantic comedy, Admissions, which Adam Rodgers is directing.
As a starting point, this project should not be confused with the Tina Fey and Paul Rudd-led comedy Admission, which starts production sometime next month. The project at hand has Farmiga playing a “free-spirited mom taking her driven daughter on a walking tour of a beautiful small college.” Garcia will appear as the “buttoned-up heart surgeon who’s taking his son on the same tour.” (What a coincidence!) Neither can maintain some sort of bond with their respective child during this time, but a spark soonsets off between the two.
The script was co-written by Rodgers and Glenn German, who will produce alongside Garcia and Sig Libowitz. Although the story doesn’t seem like my cup of tea per se, I’m at least a fan of both Garcia and Farmiga. The former was last seen in the drama 5 Days of War, while the latter lent her talents to Safe House just a few months back. Although I do prefer the two in more serious roles, this project could be a fun break, and they both have several other projects lined-up in the coming months, anyway.
Do you think Garcia and Farmiga can pull off a romantic relationship in Admissions?
