UPenn and Mike Karz and Robert DeNiro and Lea Michele and Glee

Just a bit of fun casting news regarding Mike Karz (C’89, W’89) follow-up film to his last year’s Valentine’s Day.

In his upcoming “New Year’s Eve” film, the following stars are reported to be attached: Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin.

Per the Hollywood Reporter,

“De Niro will play a bitter dying man in a hospital, while Pfeiffer will be a frustrated executive secretary who decides to tackle her unfulfilled resolutions. Swank would play a producer of the famed Times Square New Year’s Eve show. Kutcher would play a guy who hates New Year’s Eve.” (source)

So many stars in one film! As noted HERE, Mike figured out the formula to making this all happen.
