Er...well...you know...um...new comedy...kind of thing....
We are of course being facetious, because if your romantic comedy needs a charming, genial, self-deprecating lead, Hugh John Mungo Grant is your go-to guy.
He will be teaming up for a fourth time with writer / director Marc Lawrence (Two Weeks Notice, Music & Lyrics, Did You Hear About The Morgans?) in an untitled story about a superstar screenwriter who has fallen from grace, now teaching at a small suburban college. Could he meet an engaging student who changes his life? Who can possibly say?
Of course, Grant will soon be appearing on our screens in Cloud Atlas- a massively ambitious adaptation of the hit novel, playing six different characters. It may well be a masterpiece. It may well be bonkers. It certainly will be Hugh's most challenging role(s) of his career. We can't wait.
