First announced earlier this year, Love Actually and Pirate Radio director Richard Curtis is venturing into science fiction with his own time-travel script, About Time. Now, Variety reports that Zooey Deschanel and Domhnall Gleeson are interested in starring.
Curtis' recent writing credits include Steven Spielberg's War Horse and -- in what could be considered a time travel crash course -- the 2010 "Doctor Who" episode, "Vincent and the Doctor," which guest-starred Curtis regular Bill Nighy.
Deschanel, who has starred in films like Yes Man and (500) Days of Summer, is currently appearing on television on the series "New Girl." Gleeson, meanwhile, is best known for his role as Bill Weasley in both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
