Home Uncategorized 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.

He wrote the Intelligencer column for NY Magazine in the mid 90s, reporting on the OJ Simpson trial, as well as for the real Parade magazine (when it was owned by Conde Nast), and has written for the New York Observer, Details, Vogue, Spin, the New York Times, NY Post, Washington Post, and NY Daily News among many publications. He is the writer and co-producer of "Only the Strong Survive," a selection of the Cannes, Sundance, and Telluride Film festivals, directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
