Director Marc Lawrence (Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, Did You Hear About the Morgans?) reteams with star Hugh Grant for their fourth comedy collaboration The Rewrite, which you can check out a trailer for below!
Once upon a time, Keith Michaels (Grant) was an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can’t say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, including Holly (Marisa Tomei), a single mom looking to start her own new chapter.
The Rewrite also stars J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Allison Janney (“Mom”), Chris Elliott (Groundhog Day) and Bella Heathcote (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). It opens in theaters and on VOD and iTunes February 13.
