Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3) is in negotiations to co-star opposite Sandra Bullock in the comedy All About Steve for Fox 2000.
Phil Traill will make his feature directorial debut on the project, which will begin shooting this summer.
The Hollywood Reporter says the story centers on a brilliant crossword constructor (Bullock) who, after one short date, decides that a CNN cameraman (Church) is her true love. Because the cameraman’s job takes him hither and yon, she crisscrosses the country, turning up at media events as she tries to convince him they are perfect for each other.
Kim Barker (License to Wed) wrote the screenplay.
Bullock is producing through her Fortis Films. Mary McLaglen is executive producing alongside Underground Films’ Nicholas Osborne and Trevor Engelson.
