Cloud Atlas

Hugh Grant: Cloud Atlas, the sprawling epic that opens this week, features Hugh Grant in a variety of roles -- that’s him, above, as a San Francisco businessman in 1973 -- but he’s returning to more familiar ground with his new film, an untitled romantic comedy to be directed by Marc Lawrence. Grant will play a former award-winning screenwriter who has fallen on hard times and tries to reinvent himself as a teacher at a small college; he and Lawrence previously collaborated on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics and Did You Hear About the Morgans?.
