NBC re-making 'About a Boy' as a single camera comedy

NBC is set to remake About a Boy as a single camera comedy.

Nick Barnes, iMediaMonkey, 14th January 2013

Hugh Grant is impossibly perfect casting as an eternal bachelor boy in this Oscar-nominated adaptation of Nick Hornby's unusual coming-of-age comedy-drama. He's Will, a happily superficial chap whose inherited wealth (from his dad's Christmas novelty pop single) means he never needs to work again. Will is disconnected from the world until a chance encounter with a depressed single mum (Toni Collette) and her precocious son Marcus, played by a pre-hottie, pudding-bowled Nicholas Hoult.
