Reed couldn't say no to 'Yes'


Peyton Reed has said yes to directing "Yes Man," a Warner Bros. Pictures comedy being produced by David Heyman and Richard Zanuck.

Based on a memoir by British author Danny Wallace, the story centers on a man who decides to change his life by saying yes to everything that comes his way. Along the way he wins $45,000, meets a hypnotic dog, obtains a nursing degree, travels the globe and finds romance.

The studio picked up the book in April 2005.

Greg Silverman is overseeing for the studio.

Heyman, the producer behind the "Harry Potter" franchise, is riding high as the series' fifth movie, "Order of the Phoenix," takes down boxoffice records.

Reed recently directed the pilot for ABC's "Cashmere Mafia." His previous feature was last year's Vince Vaughn-Jennifer Aniston hit "The Break-Up." His credits include "Down With Love" and "Bring It On."

He is repped by CAA and attorney Robert Offer.
