While he’s had huge success on TV as The Mentalist, Simon Baker’s film career has been slightly more low key. Indeed it’s easy to forget he was even in The Devil Wears Prada and The Ring 2. However he’ll be hoping he makes a bit more of an impression in the rom-com I Give It A Year, which Variety reports he’s set to star in, opposite the already attached Rafe Spall.
The film is based on an original script by Dan Mazer, who will also direct, about a pair of newlyweds who go through various trials and tribulations during their first year of marriage. It’s a fairly generic set-up, but hopefully Mazer, who cut his teeth on the likes of Da Ali G Show can make it work.
The movie will shoot later this spring, once Baker has wrapped on the current season of The Mentalist.
