Remember when there was a movie called “The Kids Are Alright”? Great film but we wondered if they were using the Who song as its theme. They weren’t.
Today Deadline.com reported on a new project that caught my eye called “Coming Around Again.” That was a hit song from 1986 from the movie “Heartburn” written and sung by Carly Simon. It’s pretty famous. Also Carly Simon is closely associated with Martha’s Vineyard, where she’s lived for most of her life, sung about it, recorded concerts there, and so on.
So this description is a little dicey: Deadline says that “Coming Around Again” “focuses on a middle aged divorcee who rekindles a relationship with an old flame while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard.”
Veteran producer Carla Hacken is producing from a script by Lawrence Michael Levine, all coming from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse.
I emailed Hacken if she’d contacted Simon yet. She said she hasn’t but plans on using the song in the movie (if she can secure the rights, of course). In an email she wrote: Sophia and Larry definitely named it after that song! and of course when we go make the movie we will want to get the song. the whole setting is very, very carly simon vibe!”
