The film is written and directed by Marc Lawrence, who previously directed Grant in “Music and Lyrics,” “Two Weeks Notice” and “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”

Today we have the trailer for "The Rewrite" romantic comedy, starring Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, Chris Elliott and Jk Simmons. Check it out below. Plot: An Oscar-winning writer (Grant) in a slump leaves Hollywood to teach screenwriting at a college on the East Coast, where he falls for a single mom (Tomei) taking classes there. The new movie is written and directed by Marc Lawrence, who previously worked with Grant on "Music and Lyrics" and "Two Week Notice." It's set to hit theaters in October in the UK. A Us release date has yet to be revealed. Trailer: »
Who says Americans don’t do irony? In their fourth collaboration, Us writer-director Marc Lawrence has placed actor Hugh Grant in the role of ‘belligerent fish-out-of-water who becomes reluctantly fixated on an unconventional love interest’ – and has called it The Rewrite. That’s pretty ironic, if you ask me, since their previous efforts produced Did You Hear About The Morgans?, Music And Lyrics and Two Weeks Notice.
In this latest turn on the merry-go-round, Grant stars as a washed-up screenwriter who once collected accolades, but is now forced to teach at a college. It is here that he finds himself drawn to a single mother trying to study there. His co-star in this ground-breaking effort is Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei, who fills the inter-changeable role of ‘woman who looks doe-eyed at bumbling Brit while he makes a declaration of love in front of other people.’ The pair is inexplicably »

After Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, and Have You Heard About The Morgans?, Hugh Grant is teaming writer/director Marc Lawrence for The Rewrite, a romcom about a washed up screenwriter (Grant) forced to take up a teaching job at a small town university. Also starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, and J.K. Simmons, Grant can do this type of movie in his sleep at this stage, but is still extremely affable and charming while doing so. Check it out below. Released: 8th October »

Hugh Grant’s name is practically synonymous with “romantic comedy,” but the British actor actually hasn’t made one since 2009’s Did You Hear About the Morgans? He’s back at it in The Rewrite, in which he stars alongside Marisa Tomei as a caddish, down-on-his-luck screenwriter who takes a job teaching at a college.
This appears to be Grant in About a Boy mode—jerky at first, but about to develop a heart. Though his character initially loads his class with too-young-for-him women and makes obnoxious comments like “I’m just a little bit tired of female empowerment,” he »

The British actor stars opposite Marisa Tomei in the film, which sees him playing a washed-up screenwriter who gets a job teaching at a local university.
Grant plays Keith Michaels, an Oscar-winning writer who is now divorced, poor and fast-approaching 50.
When his agent gets him a job teaching a screenwriting course at a university in Binghamton, he meets single mum Holly (Tomei), who is also in need of a second chance.
The Rewrite is released in the UK on October 8. A Us release date has yet to be announced. »
Hugh Grant and director Marc Lawrence have worked together three times before in the past, and it appears they’re channelling at least one of their previous projects, Music And Lyrics, for new rom-com The Rewrite. Check out what we mean by watching the first trailer for the film below.Grant swaps being a songwriter for a screenwriter in this one. He’s Keith Michaels, a man who once ruled the world in Hollywood with awards aplenty, a hit film on his resume and a beautiful wife. But cut to 15 years later and he’s divorced, broke, depressed and hasn’t written a successful film in ages.When his agent suggests he take a job as a screenwriting teacher at a small town university, he initially scoffs at the idea before realising he needs a paying job – any job. Grouchily taking the gig because he thinks it’ll be a »
Even as he takes roles in "Cloud Atlas" and the upcoming "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," Hugh Grant is sandwiching those films with the kind of project which he has much experience: romantic comedy. The first trailer for "The Rewrite" is here, and its familiar fare in new packaging. Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Chris Elliott, and Bella Heathcote, the movie reteams Grant with his "Music And Lyrics" and "Two Weeks Notice" writer/director Marc Lawrence, this time for a romance set in the world of, uh, screenwriting. Here's the official synopsis: 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. »

Four decades removed from the Tate murders, Charles Manson is one of those names that are entirely too capable of sending many a shiver down the spine. On tap right now we have the trailer for the latest film to explore his madness, Brandon Slagle's House of Manson. Check it out!
From the Press Release
House of Manson chronicles Charles Manson's life from childhood up until his arrest following the raid on Barker Ranch months after the infamous Tate/Labianca murders that sent a shockwave not just through Los Angeles but throughout the entire world.
The film was written and directed by Brandon Slagle, who was recently deemed the "go-to-gore-guy" by The Hollywood Reporter during their coverage of the European Film Market. While not a "gory" film, House of Manson is poised to take a more intense approach to the subject matter than previous film and TV iterations have. »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.

In case you can't place her name, Kate McKinnon is the “SNL” comedian who does the hilarious Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres impressions. Also, she's played a key role in seemingly every viral moment from the long-running sketch comedy series over the last three years. McKinnon was just rewarded in her third season on the NBC property with not one, but two Emmy nominations. The first is for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, the second in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for her contributions to the music video “(Do It On My) Twin Bed.” Also read: 8 Questions With ‘Brooklyn. »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.
EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »
