After a years-long stint in development hell, award-winning director Cameron Crowe’s latest film is finally getting ready to reveal itself to the world.

The currently untitled project – which initially bore the moniker of Deep Tiki – is a Hawaii-set romantic comedy starring Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) as a defense contractor sent to the “Aloha State” to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite. While there, Cooper’s character falls for a beautiful Air Force pilot played by Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man).

While the film may not yet have a title, Crowe’s latest venture has one hell of a supporting cast, including Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin. Crowe’s biggest (not so) secret weapon has to be comedy icon (and frequent Wes Anderson collaborator) Bill Murray, who will be working with the director for the very first time.

The movie formerly known as Deep Tiki will hit theaters on Christmas Day, which is actually amusing on one level, since the film’s Hawaiian setting will likely be completely bereft of snow and the other usual trappings of the holiday.

On the other hand, November and December have traditionally proven to be good months for romantic comedies at the box office, with Love Actually, As Good As It Gets, and Bradley Cooper’s own Silver Linings Playbook all being notable examples. Crowe’s previous blockbuster, Jerry Maguire, also debuted in December.

Cameron Crowe is one of those rare Hollywood directors that has steadily amassed a loyal fanbase. This is a group of people who will go see this new film not because of who’s in it or what the plot is, but because it was directed by Cameron Crowe.

While Crowe’s legions aren’t as large as, say, Scorsese, Spielberg, or Tarantino, his films tend to connect with their intended audience on a deep emotional level. Even the “love it or hate it” Vanilla Sky tends to inspire passionate debate on both sides.

Still, many fans found themselves disappointed by the director’s last film, We Bought A Zoo, which had a tendency to be overly saccharine and lacked of lot of the intelligence present in many of Crowe’s prior works. Even before that, Crowe’s brand was damaged by the critical and commercial failure of the 2005 film Elizabethtown.

This new project represents a chance for Cameron Crowe to come back swinging and prove to his loyalists that he hasn’t lost the magic that made films like Almost Famous, Say Anything, and the aforementioned Jerry Maguire so special. Can he do it? We’ll have to wait and see.

  1. To this day, I don’t understand the vitriol and consistent comments saying “Elizabethtown” was a crappy movie. For me, it’s one of his top films. I thought the story was poignant, a situation people could identify with, a down-to-earth supporting cast, and a great set-up for a love story.

    • Actually liked Elizabethtown. Thought it was a pretty good movie.

    • Elizabethtown is one of my all-time favorite movies. The romance doesn’t feel forced and I loved the characters. Thanks to this movie, I now want “Free Bird” played at my funeral.

  2. Looking forward to this!
