London: After working together in `Charlie Wilson`s War`, Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts are coming together once again for romantic comedy `Larry Crowne`.

The movie is about middle aged man, Larry, who loses his job as overly enthusiastic team leader at a discount warehouse store and chooses to go back to college to re-invent himself where he falls for his unhappily married public speaking teacher - played by Roberts.

"The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live," the film synopsis explains.

The film also stars Cedric The Entertainer, Jon Seda, Wilmer Valderrama and Pam Grier, reported a website.

The movie, which hits theatres on July 1 in the US, has been directed by Hanks, who won two Oscars for `Philadelphia` and `Forrest Gump`.
