Patrick Dempsey (Made of Honor, Enchanted) and Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!, Les Miserables) are set to star in Wonderful Tonight, a new romantic comedy from screenwriter J. Mills Goodloe (Ride, A Gentleman's Game) and Myriad Pictures.

Wonderful Tonight tells the story of an unlikely love affair that arises when a one night stand between a wealthy lifelong bachelor and a free-spirited young woman results in a child. Used to having women chase him because of his money and good looks, he is in for a surprise when two years later; she rejects him because of his selfish and arrogant past. Now he must prove himself as a father and try to win her heart.

President/CEO of Myriad Pictures, Kirk D'Amico, says "We responded to J. Mills Goodloe's feel good script immediately and we are so pleased to be in business with Martin and Liz at Castle Rock and with Susan Arnold and Donna Roth. We think that the combination of Christine Jeffs, Patrick Dempsey, and Amanda Seyfried brings a wonderful chemistry to this highly original romantic comedy."

Christine Jeffs (Sunshine Cleaning, Sylvia) is attached to direct the project. Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer will produce the film under the Castle Rock Entertainment banner together with producers Donna Roth and Susan Arnold (Benny & Joon, America's Sweethearts). Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer most recently produced Friends with Benefits, Bernie, and the third installment of the Before Sunset trilogy. Myriad is handling worldwide rights to the film and is pre-selling at the AFM this week.
