Adrien Brody and Lindsay Lohan will star in the independent romantic comedy Speechless, according to Variety. Brian Dannelly (Saved) will direct the Sobini Films production, with filming to begin later this year.

The project, previously known as "The Guided Man," is a modern Cyrano de Bergerac story about an introverted man (Brody) who is invited to give a speech at his childhood friend's wedding and turns to a service that allows someone -- played by Lohan -- to speak through him.

The film is based on a story by L. Sprague De Camp from 1952.

Dannelly and writing partner Michael Urban are co-writing the script along with Steve Adams, who wrote the original adaptation.
