Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson are in discussions to star opposite Reese Witherspoon in a comedy to be directed by James L. Brooks. The project's working title is How Do You Know? and Brooks is purposefully keeping plot details vague.
The film, written by Brooks, who will also produce, features a love triangle between a white collar executive and a professional baseball player who are vying for Witherspoon's affection. Rudd would play the corporate love interest, while Wilson would portray the sports guy. Columbia will release the film and is hoping for an early summer production start date.
If the deal is finalized, it will mark the second time Rudd and Witherspoon pair up. The duo lent their voices to the forthcoming animated feature Monsters Vs. Aliens. Rudd is also up for a role in DreamWorks' Dinner for Schmucks, which is scheduled to film in September. Shooting Schmucks could put a dent in his plans to star in this Brooks comedy.
