Richard Curtis, writer of films like Four Wedding and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and War Horse, will make his return to directing with About Time and a script he wrote.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the longtime writer will be making the “low-budget time-travel picture” with Working Title Films. Casting has already started for the project which is expected to go into production sometime this summer. Nothing is really known about the story of the film or even the type of actors they are looking for.
The writer/director has also written Love/Actually and an episode of Doctor Who. In 2009 he directed The Boat That Rocked. Curtis is currently working on other projects including a collaboration with Ben Elton, whom he co-created BlackAdder with. He has also been writing a script for Stephen Daldry to direct called Trash.
