Hawke, Byrne, O’Dowd Watch “Juliet, Naked”

Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd and Ethan Hawke are in talks to join the cast of “Juliet, Naked,” a film adaptation of the novel by “About a Boy” and “High Fidelity” author Nick Hornby.

In the self-described ‘heartwarming romantic comedy,’ Byrne plays the long-suffering girlfriend of a music obsessed boyfriend (O’Dowd), while Hawke plays the rock star he idolizes.

Tamara Jenkins (“The Savages”) and Jim Taylor (“Sideways”) have adapted the script with Phil Alden Robinson and Evgenia Peretz providing revisions. Jesse Peretz (“My Idiot Brother”) is attached to direct while Judd Apatow and Barry Mendel are producing.
