SJP and Hugh Grant Estranged?

Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant are in negotiations to star in a romantic comedy written and directed by Marc Lawrence. The untitled project would see the duo star as an estranged high-powered New York couple who witness a murder and are placed in a witness-protection program in a small Wyoming town, says Variety.

Grant and Lawrence previously collaborated on Music and Lyrics and Two Weeks Notice which co-starred Drew Barrymore and Sandra Bullock, respectively.

Lawrence wrote the Miss Congeniality films – also starring Bullock – before moving to directing with Two Weeks Notice.

The film is eyeing a March production start date.
