'North' Meets 'Groundhog Day' in New Comedy 'Hello, I Love You'

And that's what you get when you combine a producer from The Passion of the Christ (Stephen McEveety) with a writer (David McFadzean) from Tim Allen's TV series "Home Improvement": complete and utter chaos. But when you combine a box office and critical disaster like North with the modern comedy classic Groundhog Day, there has to be some semblance of a decent comedy hidden in there right? That's the hope as THR reports that development on Hello, I Love You, a comedy about a teenager who wishes for a new family only to find herself waking up each successive day with a new and strange one, is progressing well.
Sunu Gonera (Pride), seen in the photo above, will direct from a script by Kim Beyer-Johnson, and though there's probably some fun to be had with this concept, the same producing team also brought us the equally recycled and tired comedy What Women Want, so my hopes are not very high. On another note, one of the companies (Mpower Pictures) behind this also produced the ill-received conservative spoof An American Carol, from one-time comedic master David Zucker. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Anyway, we'll see what kind of talent comes together for a cast on this, but until then, consider me underwhelmed and dissatisfied.
