Hugh Grant gets Lost For Words

When you discover that Hugh Grant has signed on to a new romantic comedy from Universal, you naturally think he might be planning a reunion with Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock.

But nope, Lost For Words will in fact find him co-starring alongside Ziyi Zhang, in the tale of a British movie star hired for the lead in a Chinese film by a female director (Zhang). At first he falls for her translator, but soon realises that he really loves his helmer. Trouble is, the only way he can communicate with her is via the jealous translator. Cue the comedy complications!

Susanne Bier is directing this one and Variety is bringing its phrase book .
