Kyra Sedgwick will star opposite Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in Walt Disney Pictures' family football comedy The Game Plan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, the producers of the football movie Invincible currently in theatres, are producing The Game Plan. Andy Fickman directs.

The film, written by Nichole Millard and Kathryn Price, centers on a football player who learns that he has a daughter and follows his journey to become a father. Sedgwick, who was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her work on TNT's drama The Closer, will play Johnson's ruthless, over-the-top sports agent who doesn't care about the daughter.

Morris Chestnut and Paige Turco also have been cast in the movie. Madison Pettis is playing the daughter.

The movie's start of production was postponed after Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in June. Production is now slated to start Sept. 24 in Boston.
