Rainn Wilson will star in the comedy Girlfriend Experience for DreamWorks, with Montecito partners Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock to produce, according to Variety.

Mark and Brian Gunn, the cousins who recently scripted Mighty Mouse for Nickelodeon Films and Paramount, will write the screenplay.

Wilson, who came up with the idea, will play a lonely geek who, in an effort to make himself seem more desirable, hires a prostitute to pretend she's his girlfriend.
