Romantic comedy mainstays Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher will add another one to their resumes with “Killers,” a rom-com with an action twist.
Directed by Robert Luketic (of “Legally Blonde” and “The Ugly Truth”), the film follows newlyweds Jen and Spencer, who married quickly after meeting and falling in love on vacation. But when they return home, they discover their neighbors might be assassins who are out to kill them.
Luketic told Entertainment Weekly: “We didn’t really test that there was going to be chemistry between Ashton [Kutcher] and Katherine [Heigl]. We just relied on the fact that we had two such likable personalities. You look at them on the screen and you just smile. It turned out they had a lot of chemistry. In fact, they had too much chemistry sometimes [laughs].”
Heigl and Kutcher are both hit or miss for me depending on their roles, but I can see why they would be appealing choices for this type of film. The trailer should indicate whether this action rom-com will be funny and entertaining or fall flat, but the plot sounds a bit generic.
Also starring Tom Selleck, “Killers” hits theaters June 4.
