Marc Lawrence's as-yet untitled, New York-set romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant and Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei began principal photography yesterday, producer Martin Shafer announced. (Image: Marisa Tomei.)

The plot is as follows (from the film's press release):

In 1998, Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) was on top of the world – a witty, sexy, Englishman in Hollywood who had just won a major screenwriter's award. Fifteen years later, he's creatively washed up, divorced, and broke.

With no other options, he takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college in Binghamton, New York. Although the idea of teaching is less than thrilling, he hopes to make some easy money and enjoy the favors of impressionable young co-eds. What he doesn't expect to find is romance with a single mom (Marisa Tomei) who's gone back to school.

The Hugh Grant-Marisa Tomei movie is shooting in and around New York City, in addition to location work in Binghamton, New York. Besides Grant and Tomei, the film features Bella Heathcote, Chris Elliott, J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney. Shafer is producing with Liz Glotzer for Castle Rock Entertainment. FilmNation Entertainment is handling international sales for all territories outside the U.S.

Shafer, Glotzer and Castle Rock Entertainment recently produced Richard Linklater's Bernie, starring Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine; Friends with Benefits, with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis; and Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress. Additionally, they executive produced Richard Linklater's upcoming Before Midnight, which reunites Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in the third installment of the series that began with Before Sunrise.
