'Last Chance' for Hoffman, Thompson


Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson are taking their chances on the romantic drama "Last Chance Harvey" for Overture Films (HR 6/6).

The Oscar-winning actors have signed on to star, and BAFTA-winning British helmer Joel Hopkins ("Jump To-morrow") is set to direct from a screenplay he penned.

The story centers on a man (Hoffman) down on his luck who finds an unlikely companion (Thompson) while in London attending his daughter's wedding.

Shooting is set to begin in September in London.
