Shopgirl director Anand Tucker is in talks to helm the Amy Adams romantic comedy Leap Year for Spyglass. Adams will play a woman who comes up with an idea to travel to Dublin to propose to a man on February 29th, when according to Irish tradition, men must say yes. And as would be expected in the romantic comedy genre, she comes against various difficulties along the way.
It might sounds like a typical romantic comedy, but the screenplay was written by Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan, the duo behind Can’t Hardly Wait (one of my favorite teen movies) and A Very Brady Sequel (one of my favorite television to film adaptations). And yes, it is a slow news day — I guess the Thanksgiving Holiday is already in full effect. Principal photography is set to be begin in March 2009.
