By Chris Gardner and Borys Kit, Reuters
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Owen Wilson is in discussions to enroll in "Date School" opposite Drew Barrymore at DreamWorks Pictures, the studio confirmed. Jon Favreau is on board to direct the romantic comedy.
"Date School" centers on a woman (Barrymore) who is determined to find love but is lousy at dating. She then turns to a dating instructor (Wilson) for help.
The project would be Barrymore's fourth teaming with the Wilson clan. She starred with Wilson's brother, Luke, in "Home Fries" and both "Charlie's Angels" films.
Wilson has been shooting back-to-back projects including "Around the World in 80 Days," "Starsky & Hutch," "The Wendell Baker Story" and "The Life Aquatic."

These rumours are only at the "talks" stage and may turn out to be as substantial as the Cat Woman rumours were. Even so, I could use a rumour about him being in talks to do something a bit more substantial and interesting about now. I realise those roles must be few and far between but he is such a great talent and most rom com's are so woeful and predictable - I guess there are exceptions. Stll I have TLA and TWBS to look forward too amongst others, so I won't get too concerned just yet
