Tim McGraw Feels the ‘Love’ From Gwyneth Paltrow
'Love Don't Let Me Down' will be the title of the new movie we told you about several weeks ago, starring Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film is expected to begin production in January, primarily in Nashville, with a few scenes possibly being shot on Tim's farm, located south of Music City.
In the new movie, Tim re-teams with Garrett Hedlund, who portrayed his football-playing son in 'Friday Night Lights.' Hedlund stars as a rising singer-songwriter who becomes involved with a fallen country singer played by the Oscar-winning actress. The two plan a tour that could revive her waning career, along with her husband-manager (Tim) and a young beauty queen played by Leighton Meester ('Gossip Girl').
It seems almost every one of the stars in the film has also enjoyed crossover success. Gwyneth had a few hits earlier this decade when she starred in 'Duets' with Huey Lewis. The two performed 'Cruisin'," which made its way up the Top 40 charts, and the actress released a version of Kim Carnes' 'Bette Davis Eyes,' as well. In addition to her acting, Leighton is a singer-songwriter and appears on the new compilation disc, 'A Very Special Christmas, Vol. 7,' singing 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).' Tim is currently enjoying a successful turn in 'The Blind Side,' co-starring Sandra Bullock.
