Sharon Maguire, the director of 'Bridget Jones’ Diary,' is in negotiations to helm the project for Sony.

Hailee Steinfeld will star in Voicemails for Isabelle, a romantic comedy preemptively picked up by Sony.

Sharon Maguire, the director of Bridget Jones’ Diary and Bridget Jones’ Baby, is in negotiations to helm the project, which will be produced by Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tish and Becky Sanderman.

Details are scared but the spec script by Leah McKendrick is being described as a rom-com for the 21st century centering on a young woman navigating the dating scene in Los Angeles.

Steinfeld last starred in Transformers spinoff Bumblebee and voice-starred as Spider-Gwen in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. She is repped by CAA.

Maguire’s Diary, adapting the Helen Fielding best-seller, is considered one of the high points of the rom-com genre. She also directed the drama Incendiary that starred Michelle Williams and Ewan McGregor. She is repped by UTA.

Escape Artists, which has a first-look deal at Sony, is developing the live-action Masters of the Universe feature, based on the Mattel toys, and produced comedy Troop Zero that streamed on Amazon.
