Hugh Grant Quits Romantic Comedy ‘Lost’
British film star Hugh Grant has dropped out of the big-screen romantic comedy "Lost for Words," due to creative differences, Variety.com reported.
Grant's film credits include "Four Weddings and a Funeral,""Sense and Sensibility,""Notting Hill,""About a Boy,""Love Actually,""American Dreamz" and "Music and Lyrics."
Ziyi Zhang has been cast in the role of the director.
Grant officially withdrew from the project late last week.
"This was a case of creative differences," Grant's spokeswoman told Variety.com. "They were not able to get a script everyone agreed on, but it's our understanding that Working Title is moving ahead with the project and Hugh wishes them well."
