Hugh Grant Has a Thing for Younger Women in the Trailer for 'The Rewrite'

Hugh Grant in 'The Rewrite'

He's a long way from Notting Hill

Hugh Grant is an Oscar winner — well, his character is, anyway — in the upcoming romantic comedy The Rewrite.

In the film's first trailer, Grant plays Keith Michaels, a screenwriter who won an Oscar many years ago and is now forced to take a teaching job in a small town to pay the bills.

Marisa Tomei co-stars as one of his students who isn't impressed by the level of commitment that the professor is putting forth. Meanwhile, Keith gets himself caught in a web of lies involving Matt Damon and Ryan Gosling.

Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons and Chris Elliott also appear. Marc Lawrence (Did You Hear About the Morgans?) wrote and directed the film, marking the director's fourth collaboration with Grant. The actor was last seen in 2012's Cloud Atlas.

A U.S. release date for The Rewrite has not yet been announced.
