The Big Wedding, previously The Wedding, is a comedy film directed by Justin Zackham. It is an American remake of the original French film written by Jean-Stéphane Bron and Karine Sudan. It stars a large ensemble cast including Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Ben Barnes, Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams. It is set to be released on October 18, 2012 by Roadshow Films in Australia and on April 26, 2013 by Lionsgate in the United States and Canada. The Big Wedding centers around Don (De Niro) and Ellie (Keaton), a long divorced couple being forced to pretend that they are still happily married at their son's wedding. Among all of their family and friends, the hoax snowballs into a poignant and raucously funny story about the ties that bind.
