Doctor Who scribe, Love Actually writer/director Curtis will direct time-travel feature

New Zealand born writer/director Richard Curtis, best known for writing the movies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones Diary, Notting Hill, War Horse and Love Actually (the latter of which he also directed), will get back in the director’s chair for About Time, a time travel movie from Working Title Productions. No details about the plot are available yet.
Curtis is also no stranger to television, as Doctor Who fans will remember the emotional episode called “Vincent and the Doctor”, featuring troubled artist Vincent Van Gogh, which he wrote. He also wrote many TV episodes of popular British comedies such as the Blackadder series, Mr. Bean, and The Vicar of Dibley.
One wonders with his history of frequently working with both Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Grant, which of the two “honorary” Doctors (both appeared as the Doctor in the spoof, “The Curse of the Fatal Death”) will appear in this movie?
