Katie Holmes hasn’t really worked the romantic comedy angle since the 2004 flop First Daughter, but it looks like she’s giving the genre another try. The Hollywood Reporter says that producers at Cannes are looking to pre-sell the international rights for Responsibile Adults, which will feature Katie as a woman who realizes she used to babysit her young boyfriend, to be played by Chace Crawford. Though since the age difference between the actors is only about seven years, we wouldn’t say this really qualify as some cougar biz.
Holmes has been pretty busy of late, with the Guillermo Del Toro-produced thriller Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark and Jack & Jill with Adam Sandler set to come out later this year (her Sundance stinker The Son Of No One, with Channing Tatum and Al Pacino, is still waiting for a release date). While none of her recent roles—even that high-profile turn as Jackie Kennedy in The Kennedys—has grabbed critics or audiences, you certainly can’t fault her work ethic.
