Minnie Driver has been cast as a hippie mum in the Tv reworking of Hugh Grant's 2002 movie About A Boy.

Perfect Couples star David Walton will take on Grant's character Will, while Driver's Fiona was portrayed by Australian actress Toni Collette on the big screen.

The movie was former child star Nicholas Hoult's first major role - he played Fiona's son Marcus.

The Tv series will be set in San Francisco and top U.S. Tv screenwriter Jason Katims will pen the pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Robert De Niro are among the executive producers and Iron Man's Jon Favreau is reportedly on board to direct the pilot.
