Marisa Tomei is in negotiations to join Hugh Grant in the untitled Marc Lawrence rom-com project at Castle Rock Entertainment.
The story centers on an Oscar-winning British screenwriter (Hugh Grant) now creatively washed up, divorced and broke.
He takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small East Coast college, and ends up in a romance with a single mom who has gone back to school.
Shooting kicks off in New York next spring. Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer are producing.
