|Grant and Hurley Get it On
- Former lovers to play squabbling couple in new film
EX-LOVERS Hugh Grant and Liz Hurley are to get it together again - on screen.
The estranged pair are rumoured to be playing a rowdy couple in a new UKP60 million Warner Brothers remake of the 1980s film The Cannonball Run.
"It may just seem like a gimmick but anyone who has met them will bear witness to how funny they are together," said an insider. "They are so British and stiff-upper lipped when the mood takes them. They're just ideal as lovers fighting like cat and dog."
The original starred Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluise as bogus medics trying to outwit cops who chase them across the US. Reynolds is expected to reprise his role in the new film, directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard, Last Action Hero). Other names touted are one time Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson and comedy star Tim Allen.
