Charlie Matthau has signed on to direct the love story, Mikey & Dolores.

The film is about a down-on-his-luck talent manager who falls in love with his client, a jazz singer, says Variety. The lead role will be played by David Proval, who wrote the script with his wife, Cheryl Meccariello. The film will include a lot of music, most of it in the form of jazz standards sung by the songstress.

Matthau said he was in talks with Eric Roberts, Steven Bauer, Vincent Pastore and actress Tanna Frederick to co-star. Don Rickles and Pete Rose will play small roles as a standup comic and Vegas celeb, respectively.

Mikey & Dolores begins shooting in May in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
