Jennifer Garner to Star in "Catch and Release"

Jennifer Garner Signs on to a Romantic Comedy


Oct 20, 2004 - "Alias" star Jennifer Garner is set to play a leading role in the romantic comedy, "Catch and Release." "Catch and Release" will be directed by Susannah Grant, who also wrote the script, and will produced by Jenno Topping.

Variety describes "Catch and Release" as focusing on a woman (Jennifer Garner) who has to come to terms with her husband's death and deal with the discovery of secrets he was keeping from her before he died.

"Catch and Release" marks Susannah Grant's directorial debut. Grant previously wrote the scripts for "Erin Brockovich," "28 Days," "Ever After," and the upcoming release, "Charlotte's Web."

Jennifer Garner recently wrapped filming of the "Daredevil" spin-off, "Elektra," in which she reprised her role of Elektra Natchios. Garner has had box office success in the romantic comedy genre before. In 2004's "13 Going on 30," Garner played a 13 year-old girl who made a wish and woke up to find herself a successful 30 year-old magazine editor.
