Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to star in "Romantic Comedy", for director Joel Gallen. The Hollywood Reporter says production is aimed to begin in August after Gellar wraps production on Warner Bros.’ Scooby-Doo Too. "Romantic" puts a spin on romantic comedies as a young man named Max tries to win the affections of the girl he loves (Gellar) by copying romantic movie moments. Gellar plays Kate, Max’s best friend who works as a translator at the United Nations. Kate, who has been friends with Max for 15 years, is blind to the fact that he is still stuck on her.
