Hugh Grant to Reteam with TWO WEEKS NOTICE Director for Romantic Comedy; Anna Kendrick to Lead Musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS

We’ve got a couple casting stories for you in one handy article.  First up, Hugh Grant is set to reunite with director Mark Lawrence for a fourth time for yet an another romantic comedy. The untitled picture, written by Lawrence, has Grant playing a broke, washed-up Oscar-winning screenwriter who is forced to teach at a small East Coast college.  While he expects to win the favor of his attractive co-ed pupils, he ends up falling for a single mom who has gone back to school.  The lead here sounds awfully similar to Grant’s character in Music and Lyrics (also written and directed by Lawrence), but since I find that movie surprisingly charming, I hope that this untitled picture will be better than Grant/Lawrence’s other efforts, Two Weeks Notice and Did You Hear about the Morgans?

Grant will next be seen playing six roles in Cloud Atlas, which opens on Friday and you should totally go see.  Hit the jump for some Anna Kendrick casting news.
