Well isn't this just McDreamy news. Patrick Dempsey, on his next break from Seattle Grace Hospital, will be producing and starring in an as-yet untitled comedy by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers of The Hangover, and directed by one of Empire's favourite people, Paul McGuigan.

The plot will see Dempsey play a man caught in two bank robberies of the same bank at the same time. In the middle of all this, he's trying to protect the bank teller with whom he's secretly in love and- Wait. They lost us. Patrick Dempsey doesn't tell the girl he's in love with her? We're supposed to believe that he's a bit shy and hasn't got the self-confidence to ask out a bank teller? Has no one told him he looks just like Patrick Dempsey?!

Ahem. Anyway, moving on, shooting begins in April, by which time Dempsey's next film, Valentine's Day, will have been released and hopefully helped us to forget Maid of Honour.
