Check out the latest trailer for The Rewrite featuring 2010 Heath Ledger Scholarship winner Bella Heathcote.
Heathcote stars opposite an all-star cast that includes Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons and Chris Elliott.
Written and directed by Marc Lawrence (Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice), the story follows Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) a screenwriter who was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching fifty and hasn’t written a hit film in years.
Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to turn when he meets Holly (Marisa Tomei). A single mum working two jobs to earn her degree, the pair find themselves connected by their mutual need for a second chance.
Heathcote plays Karen, a young and attractive student Kiether selects to be in his class.
