Garner and Biel the new Laverne and Shirley?

Garry Marshall, the director of Jennifer Garner's new film Valentine's Day is seriously considering a remake of his classic TV show Laverne and Shirley. After after fellow Day star Jamie Foxx suggested to Marshall that Garner and Jessica Biel would make a good Laverne and Shirley, the director loved the idea. Apparently, Biel and Garner became good friends while working on the film, and their antics caught Foxx's attention. Marshall has already confirmed that he is moving forward on the movie, and says his sister Penny Marshall (original Laverne) and Cindy Williams (original Shirley) will have cameos. Garner said she and Biel are excited about the project. "We're dying to do it," she said.
