Noth’s the ‘Only’ one for Loncraine

Actor to star opposite Zellweger in comedy

Chris Noth will star with Renee Zellweger in “My One and Only,” the Richard Loncraine-directed comedy based on a childhood adventure of actor George Hamilton.

Shooting begins next month.

Zellweger plays Anne Deveraux, a glamorous dreamer who travels from city to city looking for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons. Noth plays a retired military doctor who might just fit the bill.

Scripted by Charlie Peters, the film is based on a true story that Hamilton shared with Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mother and brother.

“My One and Only” is a co-production of Raygun Prods., Artfire Films and Merv Griffin Entertainment. Artfire is financing, and Aaron Ryder, Ara Katz and Art Spigel will produce. Hamilton will be exec producer along with Ron Ward, Rob Pritchard, Dan Fireman and Robert Kosberg.

Noth reprises his role as Carrie Bradshaw’s love interest Mr. Big in the “Sex and the City” feature, which New Line opens Friday.
