Production Weekly reports that Freddie Prinze Jr. is set to star in Vanessa Parise's romantic comedy Dick and Jane vs. the World, a love story for cynics.

When organized, successful, but bored ad-man Dick falls for his roomate, free-spirited actress Jane, they decide to write a manifesto detailing their rules for life. What Dick doesn't know is that Jane has been ignoring Rule #1, "Be Honest," in order to hide her biggest secret.

Parise will helm and star in the film which starts shooting late-May in Los Angeles.
