Marisa Tomei is apparently in talks to star opposite Hugh Grant in his next romantic comedy.

Grant is reuniting with director Marc Lawrence - they worked together on Two Weeks Notice, Music And Lyrics and Did You Hear About The Morgans? - for a new untitled project.

And according to The Wrap Marisa Tomei, who has starred in The Wrestler and My Cousin Vinny, is set to play his love interest in the film.

Grant will star as Ray Michaels, a successful British script writer, who in 1988 had it all and won an Oscar for Best Screenplay.

The film will see him 15 years later, washed up, divorced and broke - and forced to take a job as a tutor at a small college to make ends meet.

What he doesn't expect is to fall for a single mother who has gone back to school - which is the role Marisa Tomei is expected to take.

Meanwhile, Tomei will next be seen in family comedy Parental Guidance alongside Billy Crystal, while Hugh Grant appears in ensemble drama Cloud Atlas.
