This time, the New York-based comedy will revolve around New Year's Eve, with director Garry Marshall, producers Mike Karz and Wayne Rice and screenwriter Katherine Fugate all expected to return.

The film will reportedly be shot later this year for a late-2011 release. New Line plans to keep the love going well past 'Valentine's Day.'

'Valentine's Day' features a remarkable ensemble cast, including Jessica Alba, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Patrick Dempsey, Jessica Biel, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Queen Latifah, Julia Roberts and Emma Roberts (whew!). No word on which actors -- if any -- will return to help ring in the new year.

On the one hand, we think that New Line should maybe wait to see if 'Valentine's Day' is a hit before planning a sequel. But then again, with a cast like that, it should make at least a few bucks at the box-office this weekend, especially after 'Dear John' dethroned 'Avatar.' And that's better than any ol' box of chocolates.
