Hugh Grant to reunite with Marc Lawrence for new rom-com
Story by Jack Foley
HUGH Grant is to reunite with director Marc Lawrence for a new, as-yet untitled romantic comedy.
The story will focus on a man named Ray Michaels (Grant) who, in 1998 had just won an Academy Award for best screenplay.
It will revisit the character 15 years later when he’s creatively washed up, divorced and broke.
Left with no other options, he takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college on the East Coast in the hope of making some easy money and enjoying the company of impressionable young co-eds.
Instead, he finds unlikely romance with a single mother who has gone back to school.
Grant’s female lead has yet to be cast but shooting is due to begin in April 2013 in New York.
Grant will next be seen in Cloud Atlas.
