Hugh Grant: Every Upcoming Movie and TV Show in 2024 and 2025

Considered one of the most effortless and good-looking actors the world has ever seen, Hugh Grant came into the limelight with his Golden Globe and BAFTA-winning performance in the romantic comedy movie ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ (1994) but it was through his performance in ‘Maurice’ (1987) Grant made a mark in the world of cinema. ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ came to him at a point when he had reportedly almost given up acting. Had the script of the movie not come to him, we wouldn’t have gotten to see him charm us in movies like ‘Sense And Sensibility’ (1995), ‘Notting Hill’ (1999), ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ (2001), ‘About A Boy’ (2002), ‘Two Weeks Notice’ (2002), ‘Love Actually’ (2003), ‘Music and Lyrics’ (2007), ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ (2016), ‘Paddington 2’ (2017), and many more.

While Grant began his career as the quintessential romantic lead, he has smoothly transitioned into a more dramatic actor with a variety of roles to his name. These include pop star Alex Fletcher in ‘Music and Lyrics’, the tender St. Clair Bayfield in ‘Florence Foster Jenkins,’ Edward Ferrars in ‘Sense and Sensibility’ and the master of disguise Phoenix Buchanan in ‘Paddington 2’. If you too have been mesmerized by his performances, check out his upcoming projects!

1. Unfrosted (TBA)

Jerry Seinfeld’s directorial debut ‘Unfrosted,’ alternatively titled ‘Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story,’ is a comedy movie produced by Columbus 81 Productions and set to be distributed by Netflix. Set in 1963, the film revolves around the invention of pop-tarts and how cereal rivals Kellogg’s and Post Consumer Brands fight to create pastries that would go on to revolutionize breakfast forever. That said, the movie will use only a few true elements, which are borrowed from the above-mentioned fight, and then move in its own direction based on a script penned by Seinfeld along with Spike Feresten, Andy Robin, and Barry Marder. Grant will play the role of/voice Tony the Tiger, a cartoon anthropomorphic tiger that served as the mascot for Frosted Flakes

“Stuck at home watching endless sad faces on TV, I thought this would be a good time to make something based on pure silliness. So we took my Pop-Tart stand-up bit from my last Netflix special (‘Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill’) and exploded it into a giant, crazy comedy movie,” Seinfeld told Deadline about the origin of the movie. Alongside Seinfeld and Grant, the cast includes Melissa McCarthy, James Marsden, Rachael Harris, Maria Bakalova, Christian Slater, Max Greenfield, Thomas Lennon, and Adrian Martinez. Amy Schumer, Jack McBrayer, Bobby Moynihan, and Sarah Cooper also feature in the movie. Presently in its post-production stage, the movie is expected to release on Netflix on May 3, 2024.
