Pajiba is reporting that Will Ferrell has signed on to star in a romantic comedy remake of the 2006 French film I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single.

Ferrell will star as a 40-something bachelor pressured by his mother and seven sisters to settle down and get married, prompting him to ask a friend's sister to leave him at the altar so that everyone will leave him alone.

The remake is still in the early phase of development and no screenwriter is involved at the moment.

No production date was announced.
