Richard Curtis considers retirement


Richard Curtis, the British screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary has said of his latest film that it “probably will be the last film I will direct.”

In an interview with Empire magazine, the 56-year-old Curtis said that this was a ‘summing up’ of his directing career, after directing only three features – Love Actually, The Boat That Rocked and now About Time.

About Time is about a man (Domhall Gleeson) who discovers he can travel through time, and uses his new found power to woo Rachel McAdams. It is due for UK release on August 8th.
