Zellweger Has One and Only

Renee Zellweger is near a deal to star in the comedy “My One and Only” for Raygun Prods., Artfire Films and Merv Griffin Entertainment said Variety.

Set in the 1950s, the story focuses on the glamorous Anne Deveraux (Zellweger) as she drives down the Eastern seaboard from city to city in a quixotic search for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons.

The film is based on a true story that actor George Hamilton told Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mom and brother.

Charlie Peters wrote the script, and Richard Loncraine will direct the pic, which begins shooting in April on the East Coast.
