We’ll Never Have Paris

We’ll Never Have Paris has been chosen to close the 68th Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Written by Big Bang Theory star Simon Helberg, who also co-directed with Jocelyn Towne, We’ll Never Have Paris centres on a man who suffers a midlife when he receives a sudden declaration of love from an attractive co-worker moments before he is about to propose to his girlfriend.

The film, which premiered earlier this year at the South by Southwest Film Festival to positive reviews, stars Helberg, Melanie Lynskey, Maggie Grace, Alfred Molina, Zachary Quinto and Jason Ritter.

Artistic director of the Edinburgh International Film Festival Chris Fujiwara said, “With We’ll Never Have Paris, a funny and very personal romantic comedy, we’ll be able to close this year’s festival on a real high note.”

Helberg is expected to attend the festival, which runs from June 18 – 29. The full line-up, meanwhile, will be revealed on May 28.
