The cast of writer/director Marc Lawrence’s still untitled romantic comedy has just expanded by two. J.K. Simmons and Chris Elliott will joining Hugh Grant, Marissa Tomei, Bella Heathcote, and Allison Janney in the project set to begin filming next month in New York.
The untitled rom-com is set up at Castle Rock.
The Plot:
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.
