Maggie Gyllenhaal looks for laughs in ‘vibrator comedy’

HollywoodNews.com: Maggie Gyllenhaal is working overtime.

Soon after it was announced that she was starring with her main man Peter Sarsgaard in a bluegrass Bill Monroe feature, she’s also linked to a period romantic comedy “Hysteria.”

Variety is calling the film a “vibrator comedy.”

Hugh Dancy stars as the doctor and love interest of Gyllenhaal. Dancy’s character apparently works for her father who is being played by Jonathan Pryce. The film is expected to go before the cameras in October.

Speaking to ScreenCrave, Gyllenhaal exclaims, “I play a firecracker whose father is a doctor who is in the business of curing hysterical women. He cures them basically by getting them off and that actually happened. I end up having a sort of unexpected love affair with this guy who works for him, and who by mistake invents the vibrator.”

Gyllenhaal can be seen on the big screen this weekend in the U.K. kiddie sequel “Nanny McPhee Returns.”
“Nanny McPhee 2” has made $62.6 million at the foreign box office already with close to 40% of its ticket sales coming from its country of origin, the U.K.
