Hugh, are you talking to me?
Hugh Grant will join Robert De Niro for the comedy RULE NUMBER 3. To be directed by Rob Bowman, the Columbia comedy will star De Niro as an everyday schlub determined to take down an arrogant Wall Streeter played by Grant. Grant’s character is described as the kind of guy from Enron, Tyco or ImClone who lives high on the hog while bilking his investors. The Robert Kuhn-scripted project is likely to shoot next year. It’s also reported that a reading was held recently for the story with an all-star cast, including Oliver Platt and Harvey Keitel filling the support roles.
