Actor David Tennant has been handed another chance to make a name for himself in Hollywood.

The 40-year-old is to star in an upcoming movie in a leading role alongside A-lister Heather Graham.

He will be hoping the film, Emotional Rescue, is more successful than the last project he was in.

Although he himself received good reviews in vampire thriller Fright Night, the movie was a box office flop.

But this presents a second chance at cracking America for the Doctor Who actor, who recently married Georgina Moffet, who also starred in the BBC series.

Romantic comedy Emotional Rescue, set in New York and Connecticut, is about an award-winning journalist who finds love with Tennant’s character after the breakdown of a previous romance.

Shooting for the film is set to begin in the Big Apple in coming weeks.

Cast for the movie also includes Oscar winner Timothy Hutton and actress Alysia Reiner.
