Variety reports that Greta Gerwig will star in Lola Versus, a romantic comedy that indie giant Fox Searchlight is in negotiations to distribute.
Gerwig will play a woman who’s dumped by her college sweetheart fiancee (Orland Bloom) just weeks before their wedding, “prompting her to embark on a series of encounters in an attempt to discover her place in the world as a single woman before she turns 30.”
Anne Hathaway was attached to star but with the not so good Love and Other Drugs she might be moving away from rom-coms for a bit.
After we recently saw Gerwig in Arthur I like her for this role. Bloom based on the description becomes irrelevant pretty early in the story, but it is still Bloom we are talking about!
