Gemma Arterton and Hugh Bonneville are lined up for “The Pre-Nup,” a new romantic comedy to be directed by Jonathan Lynn, a person familiar with the project told TheWrap.
Currently in pre-production, the film follows an American groom who suggests to his British bride on the night before their wedding that they get a pre-nup.
He is a successful investment banker and she is an expat novelist based in New York. And his father is a former rock star who threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t agree to get the legal document.
Lynn also wrote the script for the film. Jeanna Polley is producing.
A representative for the film told TheWrap November 16, that Arterton will not be doing the film. She could not immediately explain why the actress was presented at the AFM as being part of the project by Content Film. Content did not respond for comment.
Arterton’s credits include “”Quantum of Solace,” “Clash of the Titans” and “Tamara Drewe.” Bonneville’s credits include “Notting Hill” and “Tomorrow Never Dies.”
Content is presenting the film to buyers at this week’s American Film Market.
