Sarah Polley's writes, directs romantic comedy to star Rogen, Williams

TORONTO — Sarah Polley's next film is a romantic comedy slated to star Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams.

"Take This Waltz," is about a young woman who struggles with her infidelities. Telefilm Canada says Polley will direct and produce the film, which begins production in July in Toronto.

The romantic comedy is Polley's followup to her poignant love story, "Away From Her," which earned her an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay in 2008.

The script for "Take This Waltz" landed on 2009's Black List, a compilation of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays.

Polley next appears on the big screen in "Splice," a sci-fi horror in which she stars alongside Adrien Brody as a scientist whose genetic experiments create a new creature.
