Jennifer Love Hewitt is in talks for the female lead role in DreamWorks' Jackie Chan starring comedy-action film, THE TUXEDO.
Should Hewitt sign on, she will take on the role of a government agent who teams with Chan's bumbling spy guy lead. Chan's character is wearing the title apparel, which also happens to be a state of the art fighting machine for use in espionage.
D'Works is hoping the picture will launch a new franchise.
The film, which will be directed by Kevin Donovan with a script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL), is scheduled to ramp up production in September in Toronto.
