Gwyneth Paltrow is to star in a low-budget romantic comedy directed by her brother, Jake.
The Hollywood actress, who won an Oscar in 1998 for her role in 'Shakespeare in Love', will play the lead in the $15million film.
Gwyneth has been cast alongside British actor Martin Freeman, of hit TV comedy, 'The Office' and 'Shaun of the Dead' star, Simon Pegg.
Production on the film will start in London and New York in November.
Jake Paltrow, 30, is a little known director who has previously worked on US TV series 'The Jury' and 'The Others'.
Meanwhile, Gwyneth's husband, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, scooped one of the top prizes at yesterday's Q Awards in London.
His band was named 'Best Act in the World Today' by the prestigious British music magazine.
