Universal have announced the UK Region 2 release of Wonder Boys starring Michael Douglas, Tobey Maguire (Lord of the Rings), Frances McDormand (Almost Famous), Katie Holmes (The Gift) and Robert Downey Jr on 3 September.
English Professor, Grady Tripp (Douglas), is not having the best of days. His marriage has broken down, his girlfriend (and University Chancellor) is pregnant and he's been struggling for seven years with writers' block. On top of his personal troubles, Tripp and eccentric student James Leer (Maguire) are trying to dispose of a murdered pet and relocate a rare jacket once owned by Marilyn Monroe. Wonder Boys was directed by Curtis Hanson (L A Confidential).
