Love Actually Director Richard Curtis to Helm About Time


Richard Curtis, the director of Love Actually and Pirate Radio, will venture into science fiction with his own time-travel script, About Time. The Hollywood Reporter has the story, saying that the film is set up at Working Title Films and is designed for a modest budget.

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.

Planning to shoot this summer, About Time is expected to enter the casting phases immediately, so check back for updates as they become available.
