Hugh Grant roped in for romantic comedy

By Hindustan Times

Actor Hugh Grant has been roped in to play the lead in Marc Lawrence's new untitled romantic comedy.

In the film, Grant will play a witty Englishman in Hollywood, who won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay in 1998. Fifteen years later, he's creatively washed up, divorced and broke- so he takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college on the East Coast, reports variety.com.

The film will be shot in New York. It will go on floors in April next year.
