Marisa Tomei to romance Hugh Grant

November 23rd, 2012

Marisa Tomei will romance Hugh Grant in a new movie.

The brunette beauty is in talks to star opposite the British actor in an as-yet-untitled romantic comedy from writer/director Marc Lawrence.

The film follows Hugh's character Ray Michaels, a charming Englishman who is celebrated by Hollywood for his work as a screenwriter in the late 1980s.

However, 15 years after winning an Oscar, he is left broke, unemployed and lacking creativity, so agrees to take on a job teaching writing at a small college. Though Ray intends to use his fame and new position to impress college girls, he instead finds romance with Marisa's character, a single mother who has returned to school.

Filming is scheduled to begin next spring in New York.

The movie marks the fourth time Hugh will have teamed with Marc, having previously worked together on 'Two Weeks Notice', 'Music And Lyrics', and 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?'.

Marisa can next be seen opposite Billy Crystal in 'Parental Guidance', while Hugh's next big screen outing is in 'Cloud Atlas'.
