Richard Curtis To Direct Again

It’s actually been a while since Richard Curtis directed a movie. The last time was the execrable The Boat That Rocked(retooled as Pirate Radio in the US) but now he’s looking to step behind the camera again for a self-penned low-budget dramedy called About Time.

There aren’t many details available at the moment but the script is finished and Curtis is looking for a cast for a shooting date in the summer.

While he hasn’t been shouting at people from a chair lately, he has been quite busy, co-writing War Horse with Lee Hall for Steven Spielberg as well as Trash for Stephen Daldry and a new rom com Lost For Words which is paddling somewhere in the development shallow end at the moment.
