Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd are in talks to star opposite Reese Witherspoon in James L. Brooks’ romantic comedy currently titled “How Do You Know?” for Sony Pictures says Variety.
Rudd would play a white-collar executive vying for Witherspoon’s affections, while Wilson would portray a professional baseball pitcher who is also a love interest.
Brooks (“As Good as it Gets”) penned and will both produce and direct. Paula Weinstein and Laurence Mark are also producing. Shooting kicks off this Summer.
Rudd’s involvement may hit a snag as he is also in talks to star in DreamWorks’ comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.”
