Chris Noth will star with Renee Zellweger in My One and Only, the Richard Loncraine-directed comedy based on a childhood adventure of actor George Hamilton.
Shooting begins next month, according to Variety.
Zellweger plays Anne Deveraux, a glamorous dreamer who travels from city to city looking for a wealthy man to fund a new life for her and her sons. Noth plays a retired military doctor who might just fit the bill.
Written by Charlie Peters, the film is based on a true story that Hamilton shared with Merv Griffin about his early life on the road with his mother and brother.
