MANILA, Philippines - Oscar-winner Michael Douglas (photo) stars in Castle Rock Entertainment’s new comedy And So It Goes as Oren Little, a once-successful real estate broker whose wife passed away several years earlier after a protracted battle with cancer. Now, an unexpected arrival leads him to open his heart — to his family, to romance and to life itself.

Also starring Diane Keaton, And So It Goes will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting Sept. 24.

The film marks Douglas’ second film with director Rob Reiner at the helm. “I love working with Rob, especially since we had worked together on The American President,” the actor says. “There’s a comfort factor — you don’t have to go through the introductions. There’s shorthand. And Rob trusts his instincts. He doesn’t like to do a lot of takes, likes to move things along. And he knows everybody’s lines. On ‘Action,’ he just goes into another world. He puts his nose up to the monitor and watches everything really, really closely. And he has a stellar history with comedies.”

Douglas was also attracted to the script and the qualities of his character. “I’m always attracted to characters that are not very attractive, but ultimately come around,” Douglas notes. “I enjoy the challenge of trying to get the audience onto my side.”
