VIDEO: First Look - Hugh Grant Returns to Romantic Comedy in THE REWRITE
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.
