There’s a New Hugh Grant Rom-Com on the Horizon

\Actor Hugh Grant attends "Cloud Atlas" Photo Call during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival at TIFF Bell Lightbox on September 9, 2012 in Toronto, Canada.

Hugh Grant has lined up his post–Cloud Atlas project, and yes, it's a rom-com. According to Deadline, Grant has signed on to star in a still-untitled movie about a washed-up Oscar-winning screenwriter who starts teaching at a small East Coast college — where he falls in love with a single mom who's going back to school. The movie marks Grant's fourth film with writer/director Marc Lawrence, who also did Two Weeks Notice (decent!), Music and Lyrics (actually good!), and Did You Hear About the Morgans? ( … terrible).
