According to Variety, Regency Enterprises is in negotiations with Ivan Reitman to helm the comedy Super Ex from Emmy-winning "Simpsons" writer/co-exec producer Don Payne.

The story centers on a man who discovers that the needy, manipulative woman he's dating is a superhero. When he breaks up with her, she uses her superpowers against him.

The development deal with Regency would represent the first helming project in four years for Reitman.
