British actor Hugh Grant is set to star in a new movie satirising American politics and showbusiness.

In DREAMZ, Grant will portray a UK TV personality, while Dennis Quaid is in line to play the US President going through a nervous breakdown.

Chris Klein and Mandy Moore are also in talks to appear in the movie.

Paul Weitz, who wrote the film, says, "The movie examines the role of dreams and ambitions in American culture. It's about what's wrong with America and how close it is to what's right with America."
