Alyssa Milano commits to 'Boyfriend'

Will star in, produce romantic comedy

NEW YORK -- Alyssa Milano will weave a spell on the big screen.

The former "Charmed" star has signed on to star in and produce "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," a romantic comedy in which she plays a woman with a relationship dilemma.

Beau Bridges, Michael Landes, Christopher Gorham and Carol Kane round out the rom-com's cast.

Milano will play an outgoing woman who meets two seemingly ideal men in quick succession -- a struggling novelist (Gorham) and successful ad exec (Landes) -- and must decide between them. Daryn Tufts will direct from his own script.

The CAA-repped Milano will produce via her Peace by Peace Prods. shingle, which is aiming to ramp up feature development and production.

Fiftyfilms' Rick McFarland will also produce, and Joseph Pia and Nate Jones will exec produce.

CAA packaged the indie, which is set to begin shooting this summer.

Milano produced her hit television show "Charmed," but "Boyfriend" marks one of her first feature projects as a producer. The star also recently had a recurring role on NBC's "My Name Is Earl" as well as the buzz ABC pilot "Romantically Challenged."

Gorham stars in CBS limited series "Harper's Island," and Landes next stars in Sarah Michelle Gellar-toplined supernatural tale "Possession." Both are repped by CAA.
