Director Garry Marshall has told TV Guide that a few of the stars his flop "Valentine's Day" may be teaming up in a film version of popular 70s TV show "Laverne & Shirley." Marshall said Ben Affleck's bride Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel would star in the film. "Jamie (Foxx) and I are trying to do it," Marshall said. "He's writing it. It's a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big 'L' tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley." On the show, Laverne was played by Penny Marshall and Shirley by Cindy Williams.
