Paul Newman’s “final project” gets underway — “Lucky Them”

Paul Newman was working on and planning to cameo in “Lucky Them,” a romantic dramedy about a female journalist in pursuit of a reclusive musician who happens to be an ex-boyfriend.

Toni Collette has signed on to star in the long-gestating film, with Thomas Haden Church as the missing rocker. Oliver Platt is also on board. Joanne Woodward is keeping the Newman hand in it by taking a producer credit.

Deadline.com says that Megan Griffiths (they left out her first name) is now set to direct it.
