For his next romcom, Hugh Grant has reunited with director Marc Lawrence to bring his foppish British charms to another light caper, The Rewrite. This collaborative duo are more prolific than you might think, having previously worked on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics and Did You Hear About the Morgans? Which leads to the inevitable question, will their next affair venture into new territory?
Ahead of its February release a new trailer has arrived online – so we can hazard a guess at how this might turn out. Keeping in the tradition of the roles he tackled in the aforementioned movies, Grant plays a stubborn, out-of-sorts type who rallies against ‘the man’ and pursues a woman who’s kooky and unorthodox (i.e. she’s probably got dreams.)

If there's one certifiable kingpin of the romantic comedy genre, it's probably Hugh Grant, whose affable nervousness and pretty boy good looks have been an intrinsic part of the genre for the past few decades. (Last year, in the terrific comedy "The Trip to Italy," a philandering husband used a Hugh Grant impression to hit on a woman he wanted to sleep with. Even the dastardliest deeds sound positively charming when given that Hugh Grant sheen.) And one of Grant's chief collaborators over the years has been writer/director Marc Lawrence, who shepherded Grant through "Two Weeks Notice," the very underrated "Music and Lyrics," and "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" Their latest comedy, "The Rewrite," premiered last year at the Shanghai International Film Festival, but since so few of us had time to swing by the Shanghai International Film Festival, you should be pleased to know that it's getting »
