The Rewrite

Even as he takes roles in "Cloud Atlas" and the upcoming "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," Hugh Grant is sandwiching those films with the kind of project which he has much experience: romantic comedy. The first trailer for "The Rewrite" is here, and its familiar fare in new packaging.

Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Chris Elliott, and Bella Heathcote, the movie reteams Grant with his "Music And Lyrics" and "Two Weeks Notice" writer/director Marc Lawrence, this time for a romance set in the world of, uh, screenwriting. Here's the official synopsis: 

Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching fifty and hasn’t written a hit film in years. Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to turn when he meets Holly (Marisa Tomei). A single mum working two jobs to earn her degree, the pair find themselves connected by their mutual need for a second chance.

Oddly, there's no U.S. release date yet for this one, but it opens in the U.K. on October 8th. Watch below.
