After breakout roles in Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” and David Chases’ “Not Fade Away,” Bella Heathcote is ready to show her funny side, having boarded the untitled romantic comedy from Marc Lawrence and Castle Rock.

Laffer currently stars Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei with Lawrence on board to write and direct.

Story follows a creatively washed up, divorced and broke former award-winning screenwriter, played by Grant, who is forced to take on a job teaching screenwriting at a small college. Heathcote will play one of his students.

Martin Shafer will produce alongside Liz Glotzer for Castle Rock.

Though “Dark Shadows” had plenty of comedic moments, this film would give Heathcote some lighter material after breaking out in serious projects such as “In Time” and “Not Fade Away.”

Heathcote was on Variety’s “2012 10 Actors to Watch” and is currently filming “The Curse of Downers Grove” and will segue from that into the Untitled Marc Lawrence feature in April. She is also expected to film “The Preppie Connection” this summer.

She is repped by WME, Medavoy Management and Joanna Milosz in Australia.
