GWYNETH, BEN REUNITE

Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck are reuniting — for a movie. The former lovers, who also starred in “Shakespeare in Love,” are planning to work together again in “Bounce,” which Variety calls a drama with romantic overtones. It is scheduled to shoot this fall. Miramax will produce, and Don Roos (“The Opposite of Sex”) will write and direct. Affleck will play a womanizer who gives up his seat on an airplane to a guy who desperately wants to get home to his wife. After the plane crashes, Affleck’s character develops guilt feelings over the other man’s death and becomes an alcoholic. One year later, he resolves to check up on the dead man’s widow (Paltrow). She is unaware of the role he played in her husband’s death, and slowly they fall in love with each other.
