Raise your glass to Penn alum’s “New Year’s Eve”

If you’ve been seeing the New Year’s Eve trailers all over TV, then you should know that a Penn alum is behind the film!

After the jump, find out which alum and watch an interview with him about the film!

Producer Mike Karz (C’89, W’89) has quite the franchise going on with developing films around key days of the year.  If you recall, he last did Valentine’s Day (and even had a small cameo in the film!)

Here’s the New Year’s Eve shpiel: “Celebrating love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts, in the intertwining stories told amidst the pulse of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year.”

Lots of star power in this one including Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Ludacris, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Katherin Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara.

Below, listen to Mike talk about the film’s main concept of “new beginnings”:
