Zooey Deschanel and Domhnall Gleeson to Topline Time Travel Dramedy ABOUT TIME

     March 27, 2012


Zooey Deschanel is going time traveling. Variety reports that Deschanel and Harry Potter star Domhnall Gleeson are in talks to lead Love Actually director Richard Curtis’ time travel dramedy About Time. Gleeson will star as a young man who comes from a family of time travelers who uses his ability in order to change situations for the better when he learns of his gift. Should Deschanel sign on, she’ll be playing Gleeson’s love interest. The actress is currently mulling over which project to shoot during her hiatus from the swell Fox series New Girl (seriously, it’s good. Give it a whirl). Apparently she’s deciding between the comedy He’s Fuckin’ Perfect and About Time, but Variety notes that she’s leaning toward the latter.

Sci-fi is a strange choice of genre for Curtis given his background, but I was a big fan of Pirate Radio so I’m open to what About Time has in store. I like Gleeson quite a bit (he had turns in True Grit and Never Let Me Go in addition to Potter) and Deschanel is beyond charming, so if the two sign on I think Curtis will have a fine cast here.
