Emilia Clarke Eyes MGM Romantic Comedy ‘Set It Up’

MGM has offered “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke the lead role in the romantic comedy “Set It Up” with Justin Nappi’s Treehouse Pictures.

The studio has acquired Katie Silberman’s spec script, in which two overwhelmed assistants set up their tyrannical bosses romantically in order to get them out of their hair. Clarke is not yet attached to the role.

Clarke, 29, has been nominated twice for a Primetime Emmy for her portrayal of the exiled Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and played Sarah Conner in “Terminator Genisys.” The British actress will be seen next opposite Sam Claflin on the Warner Bros.-MGM drama “Me Before You,” which opens in June.

Silberman is a co-producer on Warner Bros.’ romantic comedy “How to Be Single,” starring Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson, and co-produced Reese Witherspoon’s comedy “Hot Pursuit.”

CAA represents Clarke and Silberman. Clarke is also repped by Emptage Hallett in the U.K.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
