Tucker to Direct Amy Adams in Leap Year

Anand Tucker (Shopgirl) will direct romantic comedy Leap Year, starring Amy Adams. Spyglass Entertainment and Benderspink produce.

Variety says the production is set to start filming in March in Ireland. Spyglass’ Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum and Jonathan Glickman are producing with Benderspink’s Chris Bender and JC Spink.

The script by Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan (Made of Honor) centers on a woman who travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on leap day, Feb. 29, as part of an Irish tradition in which a man receiving a marriage proposal on that day has to say yes.

Benderspink’s Jake Weiner is executive producing.
