Hugh Grant-SJP Rom-Com Has Title
It's, Did You Hear About The Morgans?

09 March 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker signed on to star in the new romantic comedy from Music & Lyrics’ director Marc Lawrence waaaaaaaay back in October of last year. Back then, it went by the pithy moniker, Untitled Marc Lawrence Project. All that has changed, though.

Now, you can refer to it by its true name, Did You Hear About The Morgans?

The always good value Grant and Parker will play the Morgans of the title, an estranged couple who witness a murder and are forced to relocate to a small Wyoming town, via the Witness Protection Programme.

You might think that that witnessing a murder is an unlikely foundation for a frothy comedy, but it worked for Some Like It Hot. And if it ain’t broke…

Did You Hear About The Morgans?, which we like mainly because it’s a million miles away from the bland, generic crap that often passes for comedy titles, also gained a new cast member today. Elisabeth Moss, best known as Peggy Olson on the wonderful TV show Mad Men, will play Parker’s controlling, obsessive executive assistant.

Production on the film, which Lawrence also wrote, will begin in May.
