Hugh Grant is back! A new cheesy British RomCom is just what I need to cheer up after the Summer. And that’s what THE REWRITE promises to be. Lionsgate UK will release THE REWRITE in cinemas across the UK from the 8th October 2014.
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.
Check out the first look trailer, starring Hugh Grant (Notting Hill, Love Actually, About A Boy) alongside Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler, Crazy Stupid Love), and written and directed by Marc Lawrence (Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality).
