Monaghan Joins Downey Jr.'s Due Date
It's a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang reunion!

18 September 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

Good news for fans of Shane Black’s wonderful comedic thriller, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang – which, of course, should include all right-thinking people (and, frankly, if you’re not a fan, stop reading this, go watch the film, become a fan and then come back here). Robert Downey Jr. and Michelle Monaghan are set to reunite in the new Todd Phillips comedy, Due Date.

Monaghan, so brilliant in Kiss Kiss as Harmony, today signed on to the road movie, which stars Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as a mismatched duo racing across America in a desperate attempt to make the birth of Downey’s child.

Monaghan will play the pregnant wife, which we hope doesn’t mean that she gets little screen-time with Downey, for the two have more chemistry than Boots.

Filming starts on Monday, with the film scheduled for release next November; after filming wraps, Phillips and Galifianakis will head straight over to The Hangover 2.

" Harry shut up you're not getting the part, Colin Farrell wants too much money." Downey and Monaghan worked very well together in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. More
