Minnie Driver - Minnie Driver To Take On Collette's Role In About A Boy Revamp

Minnie Driver has been cast as a hippie mum in the Tv reworking of Hugh Grant's 2002 movie About A Boy.

The movie was former child star Nicholas Hoult's first major role - he played Fiona's son Marcus.

The Tv series will be set in San Francisco and top U.S. Tv screenwriter Jason Katims will pen the pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Robert De Niro are among the executive producers and Iron Man's Jon Favreau is reportedly on board to direct the pilot.
