Zellweger to Star in My One and Only

ON

Renée Zellweger is near a deal to star in My One and Only, a comedy based on a childhood adventure of actor George Hamilton, says Variety.

Charlie Peters wrote the script, and Richard Loncraine will direct the film, which begins shooting in April on the East Coast.

Set in the 1950s, the comedy focuses on the glamorous Anne Deveraux (Zellweger) as she drives down the Eastern seaboard from city to city in a quixotic search for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons. The film is based on a true story that Hamilton told Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mom and brother.
