Perhaps not surprisingly, Jennifer Wilbanks (the “runaway bride” of Georgia) has allowed her story to be developed into a film. ReganMedia has announced that it acquired all rights to adapt the tale into a motion picture. Also not surprisingly, the authorities tricked into searching for the bride are not thrilled by this news at all.
But, this begs the question, didn’t we already have a movie about a runaway bride called, um, Runaway Bride? Granted, that Julia Roberts/Richard Gere vehicle was a completely different film with a fictional story and a very romantic-comedy spin. But… maybe this should be a spin-off sequel? Get the Pretty Woman team together again. Here are some ideas for titles:
Runaway Bride 2: Still Runnin’
Runaway Bride Too
Runaway Bride II: Georgia On My Mind
The Bride of Cannonball Run
Episode II: Revenge of the Bride
