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.
I really don't see the Chris Pine resemeblance except for the wiseacre grin...this looks to be a fun little date movie. Hope it's more.

This is pretty much the same gimmick as the 70s play and movie "Same Time Next Year." The 1978 film version, starring Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn, is described in IMdb thusly: "A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year."

#2: No, , sorry, it isn't. The "waking up in bed with each other"-stuff happens much later in "One day", which is just one reason why this story is so much different than the movie you mentioned (although there are of course similarities). Read the book, everyone. It's fantastic through and through, the best I've read in a long, long time and I expect the movie (even if it's a great one) to disappoint me bitterly in comparison.

#2 Crap, no, you're right. I'd just totally forgotten that the book even starts with Dex and Emma in bed with each other. Umm... still, it's a totally different movie. I'm sure. Mostly.

In the book she wears a Chinese style dress to a wedding and feels foolish. I am assuming that scene is from the wedding.

This article is wrong. They don't meet on the same day for 20 years. They maintain a friendship that lasts for 20 years but the book only discusses one day (St. Swithin's day) every year. It's what makes the story interesting. Get your facts right...

if they made the guy look like chris pine then why didn't they had chris pine in it? they would look so good in another romantic comedy.. meanwhile we just to have cross our fingures and wait for that to happen maybe garry marshall will think to make a movie involing those two but damn the guy looks like chris !
