According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michelle Pfeiffer has signed on to star in I Could Never Be Your Woman for heavyweight producer Scott Rudin.

Bauer Martinez is set to finance and handle distribution on the picture.

Amy Heckerling is directing the romantic comedy from her own script about a successful professional woman in trouble with her love life. The rights to the project had previously been with Paramount Pictures where Rudin was based for more than a decade.

Rudin is in the process of moving to the Walt Disney Co. The development follows Bauer Martinez's recent launch of a U.S. distribution arm, which has been accompanied by a wave of high-profile deals for the company.
