Zellweger to star in ‘One and Only’

Comedy based on George Hamilton's childhood

Renee Zellweger is near a deal to star in “My One and Only,” a comedy based on a childhood adventure of actor George Hamilton.

Charlie Peters wrote the script, and Richard Loncraine will direct the pic, which begins shooting in April on the East Coast.

Pic is a co-production of Raygun Prods., Artfire Films and Merv Griffin Entertainment.

Set in the 1950s, the comedy focuses on the glamorous Anne Deveraux (Zellweger) as she drives down the Eastern seaboard from city to city in a quixotic search for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons. The film is based on a true story that Hamilton told Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mom and brother.Aaron Ryder, Ara Katz and Art Spigel will produce. Artfire is financing, and worldwide sales will be handled by Essential Entertainment, which will shop the film in Berlin this week.

Hamilton will be exec producer along with Ron Ward, Rob Pritchard, Dan Fireman and Robert Kosberg.

Zellweger will next be seen alongside George Clooney in the comedy “Leatherheads,” which Universal releases April 4.
