Disney drop Robin Williams comedy Wedding Banned
Walt Disney chief Rich Ross has axed “Wedding Banned,” a romantic comedy to have starred Robin Williams, Anna Faris and Diane Keaton.
The movie was being groomed for a shoot next year, but Ross made the decision to untether the project. The decision took some by surprise since “Banned” seemed to be in the mold of such other studio hit comedies as “The Proposal” and “Wild Hogs.”
The story followed a long-divorced couple (Williams and Keaton) who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. The parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.
