Chicago – After a 12-year hiatus from comedy (his last was “Edtv” in 1999), the legendary (and typically dramatic) director Ron Howard is back to crack you up with “The Dilemma”.

The Chicago-filmed dramedy is part comedy (with the well-cast chemistry of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James) and part drama (with Winona Ryder and Jennifer Connelly). Queen “Lady Wood” Latifah supports with Channing “Tatoo” Tatum and Chicago stage actor Amy Morton. “The Dilemma” opens everywhere on Jan. 14, 2011.

Much like “The Dark Knight” features Chicago as one of its primary stars, “The Dilemma” clearly looks like Chicago both with its sweeping metropolitan shots and its intimate scenes only locals would recognize. The film also stars Chelcie Ross, Grace Rex, January Stern, Debbi Burns, Rebecca Spence, Heidi Johanningmeier and Talulah Riley from director Ron Howard, writer Allan Loeb and producer Brian Grazer. »
