Ryan ReynoldsRyan Reynolds, coming off a strong summer with 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' and 'The Proposal,' will star in an as-yet untitled romantic comedy about a jilted lover who disguises himself as a woman and befriends his ex in order to win her back.

Allan Loeb, who penned 'Things We Lost in the Fire,' '21,' and the upcoming 'Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,' will write the screenplay as a star vehicle for Reynolds. According to a report in Variety, Reynolds will also serve as executive producer on the project, which doesn't yet have a director or start date.

Reynolds' star has been rising fast since his 'Van Wilder' days. With his boyish good looks and charm we have no doubt that he could pull off this role with aplomb. But is it a good idea? The whole thing sounds a little too much like 'Tootsie' without the soap opera show or 'Bosom Buddies' without the all-girl apartment building. But we'll give Reynolds a break. After his next star turns as action/thriller heroes in 'Green Lantern' and 'Buried,' he might want to tap his softer side. At the least, he can always turn to wife Scarlett Johansson for make-up tips.
