Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess have started filming One Day, which David Nicholls adapted from his bestselling novel. Lone Scherfig (An Education) is directing; the ensemble includes Romola Garai (Atonement), Jamie Sives (Get Him To The Greek), Rafe Spall Hot Fuzz, Ken Scott (Charlie Wilson's War) and Jodie Whittaker (Venus).

The story follows Emma (Hathaway, an ambitious and principled working-class girl) and Dexter (Sturgess, a wealthy dreamer who sees the world as his playground), on each anniversary of the day they met, as they experience highs and lows, friendship and heartbreak, over the course of two decades. The book was a #1 bestseller in the UK and debuted at #7 on the NYT fiction bestseller list on July 11th. Production just started in London on this Random House Films and Focus Features partnership. Before its late 2011 release, filming will take cast and crew throughout the UK, Scotland and France.
