Grant, Ziyi sign up for Bier’s rom-com.

Hugh Grant and Ziyi Zhang will star in romantic comedy ‘Lost For Words’.

The film will be helmed by Danish director Susanne Bier, her second english language film after last year’s ‘Things We Lost In the Fire’.

‘Lost For Words’ follows the story of a British actor (Grant), who stars in a film under a Chinese director (Zhang). After initially falling for the director’s translator, the actor then realises he actually loves the woman in charge of the movie.

Dan Mazer and Jamie Curtis penned the screenplay for the film.
