Speech Producers Learn “American English”

“The King’s Speech” producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman are teaming with Christina Piovesan on the romantic comedy “American English” for See-Saw Films and First Generation Films reports Variety.

The story follows a young woman from New Jersey who lives in London and tries to cover up her East Coast roots by teaching herself how to be “perfectly” English.

Ian Iqbal Rashid will direct from a script he wrote. Shooting is scheduled to begin later this year.
