Cameron Crowe is set to direct Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon in an untitled romantic comedy.
And that's all that anybody knows.
According to Variety, Columbia Pictures beat four rival studios for the film, which will be produced by Scott Rudin.
The only other hint offered in the trade paper is that the project, which Crowe will write, direct and produced, is contemporary. That shouldn't be surprising for the director of "Say Anything" and "Jerry Maguire," though Crowe won an Oscar for mining his own past in "Almost Famous."
This will be Crowe's first feature since 2005's "Elizabethtown" failed to generate either box office or warm reviews.
Stiller is currently finishing work on "Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian." He can next be seen in the August comedy "Tropic Thunder."
For her part, Witherspoon was last seen by a few people in "Penelope" and "Rendition." The "Walk the Line" Oscar winner has "Four Christmases," co-starring Vince Vaughn, opening later this year.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
