'Office' Drone Wilson Seeks 'Girlfriend'


"The Office" co-star Rainn Wilson will topline the comedy "Girlfriend Experience" for DreamWorks.

The film will be produced by Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito banner with cousins Mark and Brian Gunn ("Mighty Mouse") penning the script.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script focuses on a geek (Wilson, we assume) who hires a prostitute to pose as his girlfriend to make him seem more desirable to other women who don't charge money for sex. Will he grow to discover that the hooker is a wonderful person at heart, a woman worthy of becoming his real girlfriend? We wouldn't dare speculate.

Wilson is enjoying his time working with the Reitmans. He previously provided the funny moments in Ivan Reitman's "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" and he recently completed work on Jason Reitman's dark comedy "Juno." It was also previously announced that Wilson will write and star in "Bonzai Shadowhands" for Jason Reitman. In addition, the busy actor, best know as Dwight Schrute on NBC's Emmy-winning comedy, has been linked to the MTV Films project "Kanan Rhodes: Unkillable Servant of Justice."
