Queen Latifah, LL Cool J Star In "Last Holiday" Remake


Latifah and LL Cool J will star in a remake of the movie “Last Holiday,” an update

of the 1950’s comedy flick that originally starred Alec Guinness.

Production of the

movie is slated to start next month in New Orleans, before heading off to shoot

the European scenes in Prague.

The movie will

be directed by Wayne Wang, who has directed such movies as “Joy Luck Club,”

and “Maid in Manhattan.”

The movie centers

on Latfiah’s character Georgia Byrd, a shy sales clerk, who heads to Europe

for a vacation, after she learns she has a terminal illness.

In the original

version of the movie, Alec Guinness played George Bird and the male character

suffered from the terminal illness.

Bird travels to

Europe where he unwinds at a luxury hotel. As he begins to have fun, his life

suddenly takes a turn for the better, as does his finances.

No release date

was available for the movie.
