Millenium Entertainment has released the first look at Accidental Love.
Accidental Love is a political romantic comedy starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel. The film features Jessica Biel as Sammy Joyce, a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges. The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman (Jake Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics.
O. Russell has unexpectedly become one of Hollywood’s hottest directors, helming such Oscar-caliber hits as The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. Unfortunately, by replacing his name with a nom de plume, the producers cannot capitalize on that streak and the film is getting a low-profile VOD release with a small theatrical window. O’ Russell, meanwhile, is currently in talks to helm Joy, reuniting him with stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.
The screenplay for Accidental Love is co-written by Kristen Gore (daughter of Al Gore), based on her novel “Sammy’s Hill,” and co-stars James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Catherine Keener, James Brolin, Kirstie Alley and Paul Reubens.
Release Date February 10.
