Adams in negotitations to topline ‘Leap Year’
“Enchanted” star Amy Adams is in negotiations to topline the latest romantic comedy “Leap Year”.
Adams will play an uptight woman who travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on leap day, Feb. 29, following an Irish tradition in which women propose to men on that day and the man has to say yes. When weather derails her trip, she enlists the help of a surly Irish innkeeper to make an unexpected cross-country trek to pull off the perfect proposal in time.
Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan, the duo behind Columbia’s “Made of Honor,” wrote the screenplay, which is in the tone of “It Happened One Night.”
Although no director is on board, Spyglass studio is eyeing a mid-February start.
