The untitled rom-com is set up at Castle Rock.
In 1998, Ray Michaels (Grant) was on top of the world — a witty, sexy, Englishman in Hollywood who had just won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Fifteen years later, he’s creatively washed up, divorced, and broke. With no other options, he takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college on the East Coast. Although the idea of teaching is less than thrilling, he hopes to make some easy money and enjoy the favors of impressionable young co-eds. What he doesn’t expect to find is romance with a single mom (Tomei) who’s gone back to school.
Simmons will portray Dr. Lerner, Chairman of the University’s English department, a family man who takes Michaels under his wing.
Elliott will portray Jim, a Shakespeare professor and next-door neighbor to Michaels, in search of that certain someone.
