According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Desperate Housewives" co-star Jesse Metcalfe is set to make his feature film debut in the title role of 20th Century Fox's John Tucker. Metcalfe will play a heartthrob whose serial cheating leads three ex-girlfriends to seek revenge by setting him up to fall for the new girl in town, just so that she can dump him and break his heart.

Betty Thomas is set to direct from a script by Jeff Lowell. Bob Cooper and Karen Lunder are producing Tucker, which goes into production in New Orleans in the summer. Metcalfe plays the Lothario gardener John Rowland on ABC's Housewives.
