Henry Cavill to Star in Rom-Com 'The Rosie Project'.

Henry Cavill will star in the upcoming rom-com, "The Rosie Project".

The film, which has been in the making for a few years at Sony Pictures, is based on Graeme Simsion’s novel of the same name and will follow the former “Man of Steel” actor as Don Tillman, a genetics professor on his journey to find love. Tillman has never been on a second date, but is determined to find his wife with “The Wife Project,” an evidence-based way to ultimately find Tillman’s perfect match. However, he meets Rosie, a free-spirited, slightly “wild” bartender that’s exactly the opposite of what Tillman is looking for. But of course, the pair fall in love.

Steve Falk will pen and helm while Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan will produce. Shooting will take place in early 2022.

The Rosie Project has been floating around Hollywood for a while. At one point it was a Jennifer Lawrence project that was to be directed by Richard Linklater, and then it morphed into a Ryan Reynolds vehicle, and now it has found its way to the in-tray of Henry Cavill.
