Hugh Grant will appear in his first romantic comedy in five years when his new film THE REWRITE hits theaters on Wednesday, October 8th. Check out an all-new trailer below!
Written and directed by Marc Lawrence, THE REWRITE also stars Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Chris Elliott, and Bella Heathcote.
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.
