Lionsgate has released a new trailer for “The Rewrite” starring Hugh Grant. The film features the actor as Keith Michaels, a once successful Oscar-winning screenwriter who is now desperate and broke enough to take a teaching job at a small college.
Marisa Tomei costars as Holly Carpenter, a middle-aged woman completing her college education. J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney appear in supporting roles. The film is written and directed by Marc Lawrence, who previously directed Grant in “Music and Lyrics,” “Two Weeks Notice” and “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”
“The Rewrite” will open in theaters on Oct. 8 and is produced by Castle Rock Entertainment and Reserve Room.
