Law, love at Castle Rock

Scribe Lawrence to take on helming duties

Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant will star in a romantic comedy for Castle Rock Entertainment that will serve as the helming debut for Marc Lawrence, whose writing credits include the Castle Rock productions “Miss Congeniality” and “Mickey Blue Eyes.”

The untitled pic, written by Lawrence, has Bullock portraying a successful but somewhat neurotic attorney, with Grant as her enchanting, reckless and moneyed boss. Bullock’s Fortis Films will produce the pic, with Lawrence serving as exec producer.

Pic will begin production in February on location in Gotham, with Warner Bros. Pictures planning a Christmas 2002 release.

Upcoming Castle Rock releases include “Hearts in Atlantis” starring Anthony Hopkins and “The Majestic” starring Jim Carrey.
