Fly Me to the Moon
French star Dany Boon and Diane Kruger have joined the high-concept action-adventure comedy "Fly Me to the Moon".

Kruger plays a 30-something woman who has a great career and a loving boyfriend, though her family is plagued with a curse that turns every first marriage into a divorce.

So when her boyfriend presses her to get hitched, she embarks on a mission to marry and divorce a stranger before her actual wedding.

Much of the same team behind "Heartbreaker", including director Pascal Chaumeil and writer Laurent Zeitoun, are involved in this $24 million feature. [Source: Variety]
