It seems inevitable that Jennifer ”Runaway Bride” Wilbanks will morph from TV-news obsession into TV-movie sweeps event. We’ve cast the major players…now all we need is a good title. Damn you, Julia Roberts!

Party of Five heartbreaker JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT as the cold-footed bride.

Perennial sidekick STEVE ZAHN as the abandoned fiancé John Mason.
