First Look: Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess Star in 'One Day'
I didn't even know this was shooting already! USA Today has debuted the first photo for the upcoming film One Day from Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig (An Education) based on a book and adapted by David Nicholls. The romantic comedy plays with a gimmick where two people, who first meet at their graduation from the University of Edinburgh in 1988, proceed to reunite one day each year for the next 20 years. The always beautiful Anne Hathaway stars as Emma alongside of Jim Sturgess as Dexter. I love how unique these two look in this film, different than you'd expect, and damn does Sturgess look like Chris Pine or what.
USA Today goes on to say in their article that One Day "could be called the British answer to When Harry Met Sally." But of course there are plenty of differences that make this film unique. As for the great cast, Scherfig says of Hathaway: "She has a vast range that is extraordinary, and I was very grateful that she wanted to do it. We had a great collaboration and both cried when we had to say goodbye." Hathaway will be speaking with a British accent opposite Sturgess, who Scherfig says, "has an elegance and is laidback and confident." Focus Features is bringing One Day to theaters sometime in 2011, but an exact date isn't set.
