Little Miss Sunshine star Paul Dano will reunite with directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris for a new indie project entitled He Loves Me.

Paul Dano wrote the screenplay with his girlfriend Zoe Kazan, which centers on Paul Dano's character, a writer who achieves success with his first novel but gets writers block soon thereafter. In an attempt to break out of his creative slump, the writer creates the woman he thinks will fall in love with him, who he ends up willing into existence.

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris are developing the script with Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan. Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing the movie, which is described as a cross between Adaptation and Weird Science.

No production schedule was given for He Loves Me.
