Duhamel Signs For What's He Got?
Disney rom-com for Transformers star

15 October 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

Josh Duhamel has attached himself, like a limpet, to What’s He Got?, a Disney rom-com to be directed by Walt Becker.

Becker, of course, is the man responsible for Wild Hogs and Van Wilder, so ordinarily we wouldn’t be holding out much hope that What’s He Got? will become a comedy classic. But Disney sounds much more optimistic, shelling out around a million dollars for the pitch from screenwriter, Kevin Bisch.

You’d think that, for that kind of money, we’d at least get a synopsis, but instead the plot remains shrouded in mystery. All we know is that the movie will be a high-concept rom-com.

Duhamel’s involvement is interesting. He’s never really become the star we thought he would be after he walked off with Win A Date With Tad Hamilton!, instead getting locked into low-impact turns in the Transformers movies, and the Las Vegas TV show. Perhaps, with this and Mark Steven Johnson’s upcoming When In Rome, he’s giving the charming leading man thing a go again.

Becker will also produce the comedy, but there’s no start date as of yet.
