Simon Baker Says I Give It A Year
He'll star in the newlywed comedyWhile Simon Baker has been spending the majority of his time on US telly drama The Mentalist, he has managed to squeeze in the odd movie here and there, including Margin Call, which arrived on these shores in January. And he's just selected his next film gig, joining the cast of Working Title's romantic comedy drama I Give It A Year.Dan Mazer, who worked his way up through Da Ali G Show and has contributed to all of Sacha Baron Cohen's cinematic output (including this year's The Dictator), wrote the script and will direct. Year is the story of a pair of newlyweds as they negotiate the tricky business of their first 12 months as a married couple.Anonymous' Rafe Spall is already attached to star, but there's no word yet on when it'll shoot. Working Title is also still in the market for a distributor, though given the company's close relationship with Universal, we'd guess they might just pick it up.
