Book Club 2: Jane Fonda dons wedding dress as she ties the knot with on-screen love Don Johnson


Jane Fonda looked incredible in a wedding dress as she filmed romantic wedding scenes in Italy with Don Johnson for Book Club 2 on Thursday.

She clutched onto a bouquet as she joined Don in a marquee, before placing her hands on his chest as they said their vows.

Don looked dapper in a blue shirt and tie, worn with a slate grey suit as he filmed the emotional scenes.  

Book Club saw the pair’s character reunite – after Vivian rejected Arthur’s proposal some 40 years before. Arthur asked Vivian to commit to a relationship but she declined. However, realising she has made a mistake, she tries to catch him at the airport.

Upon reading the steamy novel, the women’s lives were changed in both a comedic and heart-warming story.  

Fonda, Keaton, and Steenburgen all have Academy Awards under their belts, while Bergen has received both Emmy and Golden Globe awards.   

When a talented and dedicated cast is put together, the final product is quite amazing. 

Bill Holderman directed the 2018 film, and will also be director of Book Club 2. 

Production for Book Club 2 is still in the works, and a final release date is still not finalized.
