Watch an exclusive clip of Hugh Grant’s new film The Rewrite

Hugh Grant plays a screenwriter turned teacher in new rom-com starring Marisa Tomei and Allison Janney

Welcome back to the realm of romcoms, Hugh Grant.


He’s played a love-sick Prime Minister in Love Actually and a bookshop owner in Notting Hill, but Grant’s new gig is as screenwriter Keith Michaels, once a happily married Golden Globe winner who is now divorced, broke and out of ideas. But Keith is given a second chance when his agent finds him a job as a university lecturer, aiming to teach students how to write films. 


The Rewrite is out in cinemas tomorrow. Have a look at this exclusive clip from the opening scene in which Grant tries and fails to pitch his film ideas to Hollywood producers…
