Hugh Grant declined Polanski’s Ghost Writer

Hugh Grant, an English actor and film producer, reportedly turned down the starring role in Roman Polanski’ s new film “The Ghost Writer”. The 49-year-old star wanted to concentrate on filming comedies, according to the movie’s writer Robert Harris.

According to Contactmusic, Harris has revealed that Hugh Grant turned down the role, played by Ewan McGregor in the film, after reading the script. He also admitted that Hugh instead wanted to carry on making rom-coms because they are more profitable.

Harris said: “I pushed for Grant because my model was Hitchcock & more specifically North By Northwest, which has an everyman hero that I thought he could play, and it was important to me, too, the film had jokes and was funny. He is in the rom-com zone and it is very profitable for him but this was an opportunity to extend his range a bit.”
