Hugh Grant Does ‘The Rewrite’ In First Trailer With Marisa Tomei, J.K. Simmons & More

Written by on August 28, 2014 


If the world of romantic comedies feels a bit strange as of late, it might be due to the fact the last time Hugh Grant graced screens it was as a cannibal (among other things). Fear not, as he’s now back to his regular duties as the leading man in the genre, reteaming with Marc Lawrence for The Rewrite.

The film follows Grant as a once-promising screenwriter whose life has broken down and now must teach a screenwriting course. There’s no U.S. release date yet, but the film will hit U.K. theaters on October 8th, and now they’ve dropped the first trailer, which reveals pretty much what’d you expect for something like this. Check it out below for the project also starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Chris Elliott, and Bella Heathcote.

Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching fifty and hasn’t written a hit film in years. Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to turn when he meets Holly (Marisa Tomei). A single mum working two jobs to earn her degree, the pair find themselves connected by their mutual need for a second chance.
