More details on 'License to Wed'

ComingSoon recently announced that this Robin Williams film-this-blog-has-been-following has begun production and the article reveals a bit more detail about the plot:
The film follows newly engaged Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and his fiancée Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore), who's always dreamed of getting married in a traditional wedding at her family church. The problem is, St. Augustine's only has one wedding slot available in the next two years, and its charismatic pastor Reverend Frank (Robin Williams) won't bless Ben and Sadie's union until they pass his patented, foolproof, marriage-prep course. Through outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some pious manipulation, Ben and Sadie are about to find out if they really have what it takes to make it to the altar... and live happily ever after.

License To Wed also stars Eric Christian Olsen (Cellular) as Sadie's best friend and confidant, Carlisle; Christine Taylor (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) as Sadie's sister, Lindsey; and Josh Flitter (Big Momma's House 2) as Reverend Frank's precocious side-kick, the choir boy.
I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea of Williams as a pastor, but I’m also holding out hope that it works. Ack. I guess we’ll see. For more about the film, see here.
