Renee Zellweger is expected to play the lead in My One and Only, a period comedy based on the childhood of actor George Hamilton. You know, that overly-tanned gentleman from commercials. According to Variety,
Set in the 1950s, the comedy focuses on the glamorous Anne Deveraux (Zellweger) as she drives down the Eastern seaboard from city to city in a quixotic search for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons. The film is based on a true story that Hamilton told Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mom and brother.
The screenplay was written by Charlie Peters (Music From Another Room) and Richard Loncraine (Band of Brothers, Firewall) is looking forward to directorial duties. Hamilton is one of the executive producers. It's nice that Hamilton can look back and laugh at his desperate mother. I suppose that's the healthy way to cope, but it's still a bit weird.
