Mark Steven Johnson (Ghost Rider) is directing from a screenplay he wrote with David Diamond. The story is about a successful, single New York real estate agent (Bell) who flies to Rome for her sister’s wedding and, after picking up coins from a reputed ”fountain of love,” is barraged with male suitors when she gets back home. Heder plays a street magician who courts Bell, while Shepard plays a self-absorbed suitor also chasing after her. Heder most recently starred in Mama?s Boy. Shepard next stars with Tina Fey in Baby Mama and with Robin Williams and John Travolta in Old Dogs. (Variety)
