Surprise! Hugh Grant is Going to Make a Romantic Comedy


Hugh Grant, off our movie screens for a bit, is coming back. He’s making a romantic comedy written and directed by Marc Lawrence, of Sandra Bullock fame. Can she be far behind? Hugh will play a washed up screenwriter who takes a teaching job in New England and falls for a single mom. Lawrence and Grant teamed up before, with Bullock, on “Two Weeks Notice.” This new untitled film sounds very cutting edge. Sorry to be snarky, but Hugh Grant is capable of more than this. At this age, you’d think he’d be attempting to stretch more as an actor.
