If you ever find yourself in a Hollywood pitch meeting, you have less than 30 seconds to make an impression. Hugh Grant’s character in The Rewrite is missing the mark.
Grant plays a once successful screenwriter who is spitting out stale ideas. He seems to have a bad case of writer’s block, but rather than changing gears and adapting, he hits a wall.
The new clip, courtesy of RadioTimes, highlights Grant doing his rounds with studio execs. He’s throwing out his ill-conceived pitch, which is especially bad when he runs the story past a young developer he has apparently met before (but forgot).

The Rewrite hits U.K. theaters tomorrow (October 8). It’s scheduled to be released in the U.S. in 2014.
