Vince Vaughn laid down the dating rules for generations of singles in 'Swingers.' Now, not even a week after being married in real life, Vaughn finds himself in another romantic comedy -- this one about cheating.

Vaughn, last seen in October's 'Couples Retreat' -- critically reviled but still a $100 million grosser -- will star in an untitled comedy about infidelity to be directed by Ron Howard, Variety.com reported Tuesday. Vince Vaughn laid down the dating rules for generations of singles in 'Swingers.' Now, not even a week after being married in real life, Vaughn finds himself in another romantic comedy -- this one about cheating.

Vaughn, last seen in October's 'Couples Retreat' -- critically reviled but still a $100 million grosser -- will star in an untitled comedy about infidelity to be directed by Ron Howard, Variety.com reported Tuesday.

Vaughn married his girlfriend of two years, Canadian real estate agent Kyla Weber, during the weekend.

The script, written by '21' and 'Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps' scribe Allan Loeb, reportedly focuses on the comedic possibilities of infidelity among lovers and friends.

Howard, who usually chooses serious films ('Angels & Demons,' 'Frost/Nixon' and 'Cinderella Man') will be working with Vaughn for the first time.

Howard has directed only one comedy in 20 years, 1999's 'EdTV' -- not exactly what would be called the next 'Hangover.'
But before that he showed immense comedic ability in directing the 1980s comedies 'Night Shift' and 'Gung Ho.'

Vaughn has gone middle-of-the-road in recent years, with broad comedies like 'Fred Claus,' 'Four Christmases' and 'The Break-Up.' 'The Break-Up' (2006), billed as a romantic comedy (though there were many who disagreed with that label) was one of Vaughn's biggest career successes; it co-starred his then-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston.

Here's to hoping for a combination of 'The Break-Up' and 'Gung Ho.'
