An All Star Cast! So, "What Just Happened?"

Here's hoping that Robert De Niro can rebound from his latest stinker (Righteous Kill) with his next movie, "What Just Happened", coming out on October 3. De Niro returns to comedy in this film with an all star cast that includes Bruce Willis and Sean Penn.

What Just Happened is a satirical comedy about two nail-biting, back-stabbing, roller-coaster weeks in the life of Ben, a middle aged Hollywood producer trying to juggle his work and private life in tinsel town.

Ben is already in over his head trying to balance the tug-of-war of having two ex-wives and two different families with his latest business venture – the boldly “visionary” movie Fiercely starring Sean Penn, when everything that can go wrong, does go wrong.

Fiercely looks like it is going to be an audience-offending flop which the hard nosed studio chief Lou, insists will only see the light day if Ben convinces drug-addled director Jeremy to re cut the finished product.

Meanwhile in his private life, he can’t stop thinking about his ex, Kelly, is shocked by his daughter Zoe in her readiness to grow up and infuriated with his friend Scott, who’s not only trying to make a deal with him but is also making moves on his former wife.

On his next project he’s trying to deal with the artistic temperament of his leading man Bruce Willis, while receiving no support from Bruce Willis’ spineless agent Dick.

Somehow amidst the madness, treachery, deceit, huge egos and personal politics behind-the-scenes in Hollywood, Ben has to find a way not just to Cannes with a finished film, but to cope and keep his sanity.
