Romola Garai and Anne Hathaway to Star in "One Day"
One Day, a romantic comedy based on the book of the same name by David Nicholls, is slated to be filmed this summer. Starring in the film are Anne Hathaway (Jane Austen in Becoming Jane) and Jim Sturgess (The Other Boleyn Girl) as the young couple Emma and Morley who meet in 1988 on their last day as students in Edinburgh. They meet one day a year for the next 20 years and the story follows their lives until (like Harry and Sally) they realize they are in love.
Romola Garai is in negotiations to join the group as the woman Morley marries and divorces. The film, whose screenplay was adapted by the book's author, will be directed by Lone Scherfig. Production begins in the summer in London.
