They last worked together in thriller Extreme Measures in 1997. “I pretty much hate everyone, but I actually like Sarah Jessica Parker and I’m rather proud of that. We worked together in 1997. And she was adorable then, but we didn’t bond then in quite the same way that we did on this film,” said Grant.
The 50-year-old actor plays Parker’s estranged husband trying to woo her back in the movie by Marc Lawrence, who has previously directed Grant in Two Weeks Notice and Music and Lyrics. The film released on January 15.
Talking about his role in the film, Grant said, “We are a high end New York couple. She is a successful real estate person and I’m a successful lawyer. We witness a murder and are sent into the Witness Protection scheme in a tiny cowboy town in Wyoming.”
“But we are actually a couple who are having problems and we’ve been split up for three months when our story starts and so it’s not an ideal time to be sent away together. But, enchantingly, the experience gradually appears to be healing our marriage,” he added.
