Simmons to play Hugh Grant's boss

JK Simmons and Allison Janney will star alongside Hugh Grant in a new romcom

JK Simmons is to play Hugh Grant's boss in his latest romantic comedy.

The Cloud Atlas star is teaming back up with director Marc Lawrence - who he worked with on Two Weeks Notice, Music And Lyrics and Did You Hear About The Morgans? for a new untitled project.

Hugh will star as a washed-up, formerly award-winning Hollywood script writer, forced to take a job as a tutor at a small college to make ends meet.

Spider-Man star Simmons will play the head of the English department and Everybody Loves Raymond star Chris Elliott has signed up to play a Shakespeare professor at the university where Hugh's character works.

The Wrestler's Marisa Tomei will play Hugh's love interest, a single mother who has gone back to school.

Bella Heathcote and Allison Janney are also already on board.

Shooting begins in New York next month.
