Richard Curtis Says It's About Time
...That he directed another film

Richard Curtis Says It's About Time

For the first time since he made The Boat That Rocked (AKA Pirate Radio for you American readers), Richard Curtis is planning to step behind the camera, setting up to direct a low-budget time travel dramedy called About Time.

The Hollywood Reporter wasn’t able to dig up any real details about the film beyond its title and that basic tone, but we do know that Curtis has written the script and is already looking for a cast. As of right now, the plan is to shoot the film this summer.

From the sounds of it, Curtis has been influenced by his stint writing an episode of Doctor Who (2010’s Vincent And The Doctor), though we’ll have to see just how much wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff ends up on screen.

Curtis hasn’t been sitting around since he made Boat – he’s co-written the War Horse script with Lee Hall for Steven Spielberg and has several irons in the fire, including Trash for Stephen Daldry and rom com Lost For Words, which has Tom Harper attached to direct but is still slogging its way through development yet. He’s also apparently working on something with Blackadder co-conspirator Ben Elton, though it now looks like About Time will leapfrog everything else to grab his focus for a while.

The Adventures of Goodnight and Loving
Richard Curtis should adapt The Adventures of Goodnight and Loving by Leslie Thomas, perfect for his usual brand of film making in my opinion. Colin Firth would be excellent in the lead role. More
