As good as Ryan Reynolds is at packing heat, flexing his calves, and growing a beard, heâ€™s still at his best â€“ if you ask me â€“ in a good laffer.
The one-time â€˜â€™Two Girls, A Guy, and a Pizza Placeâ€™â€™ star will headline an Allen Loeb-penned comedy, described as a dude-in-drag romantic comedy, with Reynolds playing a jilted lover who must disguise himself as a woman and befriend his ex in order to win her back.
Working Title paid high six figures against seven figures for the untitled concept, says Variety.
Reynolds, who had a strong summer with â€œWolverineâ€ and â€œThe Proposal,â€ next stars in the Martin Campbell-directed â€œGreen Lanternâ€ for Warner Bros. He also recently signed to star in â€œMotorcadeâ€, an action-thriller from â€˜â€™24â€™â€™ director Jon Cassar. Loebâ€™s most recent script work is â€œWall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,â€ and the Jennifer Aniston-starrer â€œThe Baster.â€
