About A Boy
What is it? A new adaptation of Nick Hornby’s comic tome about successful, happily single songwriter Will Freeman (David Walton) who enjoys life as a man-child. But his blissful world is turned upside down when single mother Fiona (Minnie Driver) and her lonely, odd son Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) move in next door. Can a single camera comedy compete with the Hugh Grant / Nick Hoult film? Well, it has the backing of Friday Night Lights / Parenthood producer Jason Katims, so there’s a good chance the quality will be high and the writing solid. What's more, Walton is one of those under-served actors waiting for a breakout show to make them a star.
