Richard Curtis is busy putting together his third directorial comedy, a slightly mysterious time-travel comedy callled About Time. Things are certainly coming together though, as Variety reports that Zooey Dechanel and Domnhall Gleeson (Deathly Hallows) are in talks to star in the movie.
It’s been a bit unclear what the film is all about, other than time travel, although the latest reports help clear things up, saying, ‘Gleeson has an offer to play Tim, a young man who comes from a family of time-travelers. When Tim learns of his unique gift from his father, he uses his newfound abilities to change situations for the better. Deschanel is making a deal to play his love interest, Mary.’
Neither actor is locked in yet, and Deschanel has a rival offer for Fox 2000’s He’s Fucking Perfect, but is apparently leaning towards the Richard Curtis movie. Whichever she goes for will shoot during the break between seasons of her hit sitcom New Girl.
