Amy Adams Makes A Jump Into ‘Leap Year’

Everyone’s favorite redhead Amy Adams (and I don’t mean that sarcastically — who doesn’t love her?) is looking to charm us senseless in a new romantic comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she’s in talks to star in Spyglass Entertainment’s “Leap Year.”

Adams will play an uptight woman who travels to Dublin, Ireland to propose to her boyfriend on the leap day of February 29th. She’s aiming to take advantage of an Irish tradition in which the women propose to the men on that day — and the men have to say yes. (Is this true? If so, I’m going to plan my own trip to Dublin.) Unfortunately, bad weather (this is Ireland, after all) derails her plans, and she must rely on the help of a surly Irish innkeeper to make a last-minute, cross-country trek in order to make it to her proposal.

The script was penned by Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan, the writing duo behind “Made of Honor” which not only boasted Adams’ “Enchanted” costar, Patrick Dempsey, but a similar Celtic theme. It’s as if they suspect women have a weakness for Irish and Scottish men. Whatever gave them that idea?

No director has been attached yet, but they’re aiming to shoot this by February. Let’s hope they also land a Adams a male costar with a real Irish brogue — nothing ruins a movie set on the Emerald Isle faster than a fake accent.

It’s your turn, readers — looking forward to seeing Adams in another lighthearted role? Which Irish hunk would you like to see win her heart? And who’s planning to travel to Dublin on the next leap year?
