In the film, Grant will play a witty Englishman in Hollywood, who won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay in 1998. Fifteen years later, he's creatively washed up, divorced and broke -- so he takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college on the East Coast, reports variety.com.
The film will be shot in New York. It will go on floors in April next year.
