Logan Lerman has signed on to play a young George Hamilton, starring in My One and Only opposite Renee Zellweger. Richard Loncraine will direct and Aaron Ryder will produce.

The Hollywood Reporter said the movie is based on the story of the actor's early years, during which he accompanied his glamorous mother, Anne Hamilton Spalding, on an extended road trip across the country to track down a father for her boys.

Chris Noth, Steven Weber and Nick Stahl are among the suitors, while Mark Rendall is George's brother.

Production begins June 9 in the Baltimore area.
