The two actors have signed up to yet another comedy movie together, just a few weeks after that they have boarded the cast of 'Office Christmas Party'.

However this time around Bateman, 47, will star and direct in the film while his 47-year-old co-star is set to executive produce.

They have drafted in Andrea Seigel - who penned 'Laggies' starring Keira Knightley-Chloe and Grace Moretz - to write the script.

The duo play a modern married couple whose traditional roles in the relationship are reversed, which is where the comedy thus unfolds.
