SOMETHING BORROWED Movie Filming in the Hamptons

Emily Giffin fans will be interested to know that filming has begun on SOMETHING BORROWED, the movie based on her bestselling book. The movie stars Kate Hudson (Darcy), Ginnifer Goodwin (Rachel), Colin Egglesfield (Dex), and John Krasinski (Ethan). Something Borrowed is about a nice girl who has always followed the rules until she begins a passionate affair with her best friend’s fiancé.

Something Borrowed is one of my all time favorite chick lit books, and I am so excited about this movie. The casting is just perfect, in my humble opinion. Kate Hudson doesn’t physically resemble Darcy, but I think she will be ideal as the fun party girl. And John Krasinski as nice guy Ethan? Genius! In the books, Ethan has a larger role in Something Blue, the sequel to Something Borrowed, so I’m curious if they’ve augmented his role in the movie.

The cast has been spotted filming all over the Hamptons, which makes sense because in the book the characters all rent a beach house together. It’s one of those books that is just so perfect that I would hate to see anything change, so I’m really hoping the movie stays true to it. Something Borrowed is slated for June 2011.

Emily Giffin also has a new book out, Heart of the Matter, and you can read my review here.
