Hailee to star in Voicemails for Isabelle
Los Angeles: Actor Hailee Steinfeld will star in the upcoming romantic comedy film Voicemails for Isabelle.
Sharon Maguire, the director of Bridget Jones' Diary and Bridget Jones' Baby, is in negotiations to helm the project, which will be produced by Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tish and Becky Sanderman, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Details about the film are scarce, but the speculative script by Leah McKendrick is being described as a rom-com for the 21st century centering on a young woman navigating the dating scene in Los Angeles.
Steinfeld last starred in the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee and voice-starred as Spider-Gwen in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Maguire's Bridget Jones' Diary is considered one of the high points of the rom-com genre.
