Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess eyeing the romantic comedy One Day
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Producer Nina Jacobson is making the rounds for THE DIARY OF A WIMPY KID and dropped a nugget about her next project, which is an adaptation of David Nicholls’ ONE DAY. As of right now, it looks like Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess are both attached to star, although it should be clear that neither have signed on the dotted line yet. Lone Scherfig, who most recently directed AN EDUCATION, will be directing.
The film is described as a romantic comedy about a couple that meet at their graduation in the late 80’s and then make a pact to reunite one day a year for the next 20 years. It sounds like a sweet, romantic film and I’m digging the casting of Hathaway and Sturgess. But it could also be depressing if it doesn’t end well. It almost makes me want to read the book…almost.
