Ray Romano has signed on to star in an untitled comedy for Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies.
The film, tentitively called Father Knows Best, will be written by Arrested Development's Dean Lorey. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but The Hollywood Reporter says the film centers around a child who enters his dad in a Father of the Year contest and fudges his credentials so he will win. The father vows to tell the truth when he goes to pick up his award, but when he gets a look at the beautiful woman in charge of the contest, he gets tongue-tied and continues the ruse.
No production schedule has been set for the film.
