Anand Tucker directing Leap Year

High concept comedy Leap Year, which already boasts Amy Adams in the lead, has now snagged a director in the shape of Anand Tucker.

The man who last worked on Shopgirl and When Did You Last See Your Father? has agreed to helm the film for Spyglass Entertainment, reports Variety .

Leap Year’s plot finds Adams as a young woman who journeys to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on February 29 to take advantage of the old Irish tradition that says the bloke has to agree.

Naturally – otherwise it’d be a short – her journey isn’t exactly an easy one.

Tucker and his team will start shooting this March in Ireland.
