Jason Bateman to direct and star in FBI comedy

Los Angeles: Actor-comedian Jason Bateman is all set to direct and act in an untitled wedding comedy for Universal.

The `Bad Words` helmer will direct the movie from a script by playwright David Bar Katz, reportedly. The film reportedly tells the story of two undercover FBI agents who pretend to fall in love and use their wedding as a law enforcement trap against the mob.

Katz will write a fresh take on the story originally drafted by David Flebotte and Phil Alden Robinson. Bateman will next be seen in Shawn Levy`s dramedy `This Is Where I Leave You` with Tina Fey. He also appears in `Horrible Bosses 2` besides directing and acting in `The Family Fang`.
