The film is written and directed by Victor Levin, best known for his 1990s hit sitcom Mad About You.
The film will cast the stars as Frank and Lindsay - 'two emotionally broken people,' according to iMDb?- who bond during the wedding weekend excursion. The duo finds 'themselves drawn to one another even as they are repulsed by one another,' according to the website.??
'When comedy is seated in character and truth it’s both funny and moving, and on that basis Vic’s screenplay is one of the best I’ve read in a long time,' producer Robert Jones told Variety about the forthcoming film. 'Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves are wonderfully skillful actors and their chemistry on-screen truly brings these irascible characters to life.'?
Past performances: The duo graced the screen for?A Scanner Darkly, a 2006 film from Richard Linklater

The film's production was completed in central California, the outlet reported.?
Both Reeves, 52, and Ryder, 45, have been closely associated with Netflix projects in recent years, as Reeves this past summer appeared in the streaming service's drama To The Bone with Lily Collins.
?Ryder is in the cast of the Emmy-nominated program Stranger Things.
Reeves, whose popularity has spanned decades with films such as Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, The Matrix and John Wick, opened up to AZ Central earlier this year about the uncertain nature of the entertainment business and the group effort it takes to create a successful project.

'It’s a hustle,' the veteran actor said. 'We’re all beggars, right, because I can’t do it alone. It’s a producer, a director, it’s casting.
'You get some offers, and if the film isn’t for you, then you can say, "Thank you." If it is for you, then you still sometimes have to find the money to produce it. The movie still has to get made.'
The accomplished star said it takes ongoing hard work to keep things moving in the right direction, adding, 'It’s called show business for a reason.'?
