Movie Casting News: Jena Malone and Josh Hartnett to star in 'A Moment To Remember'

This is an interesting casting news (though I'm a bit late on posting this here) and movie title. Today's birthday celebrant Jena Malone will star as the female lead in a new indie drama, A Moment to Remember with Josh Harnett, who was in talks (in August) to co-star with her, according to Deadline. I thought the title and premise sounded familiar and that I've seen a movie similar to this one. Sure enough, I remember seeing a similar one, which was a South Korean movie of the same title (and premise) a couple years ago. It was a very good melo-drama (but a tearjerker one) Korean film. So, with Jena starring on this Hollywood remake opposite handsome Josh Harnett, plus the writer of Erin Brockovich. I am most definitely looking forward to seeing this movie!
