According to the film’s trailer, Rachel Portman will be scoring the upcoming romantic comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It. The film starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Christina Hendricks, Kelsey Grammer, Seth Meyers and Olivia Munn centers on a working mother who is desperately trying to juggle marriage, children and a high-stress job as a financial executive. The movie is directed by Douglas McGrath, who has collaborated with Portman on several films including Emma, for which she has won an Academy Award, as well as Nicholas Nickleby and Infamous. The comedy is based on the bestselling novel by Allison Person and adapted for the screen by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses, Morning Glory). Donna Gigliotti (Shakespeare in Love, The Reader) is producing the film. The Weinstein Company will be releasing I Don’t How She Does It on September 16, 2011.

Portman has been extremely prolific of late with her music for Snow Flower and the Secret Fan being released in July, the romance One Day starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess coming out in August and the dramas Bel Ami and The Vow expected to open later this year or in early 2012.

    I think the appropriate comment here would be: I don’t know how she does it!

  2. Sarah Jessica Parker does not seem to have a knack for picking good scripts either that or she may have peaked in her performance as Carrie.
