Synopsis: The comedy looks at the lives of four Chicago women from different ethnic backgrounds, bonded by two things. They are shoe addicts who wear the same size. They form a support group, swap 7.5s and become—wait for it—sole sisters. Eventually their bond goes beyond footwear.
Paul Weiland (Made of Honour) will direct from a screenplay by Kristen Buckley and Brian Regan (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days). Filming is expected to start in the Autumn. Shoe Addicts Anonymous will be a co-production between Parallel Media and Galgos Entertainment.
This film could go either way. It does have promise but, considering most ensemble comedies, including last year’s Valentine’s Day, end up disappointing, that’s not saying much. It is, however, about time time Berry made a full-blown comeback.
