Husband and wife duo Dave Franco and Alison Brie are teaming up for a new rom-com movie, Someone I Used to Know.

The Community and Netflix's GLOW actress will lead the cast in the movie, which she has co-written with Franco, who will take his spot in the director's chair, according to Deadline.

Top Gun: Maverick's Jay Ellis and Zack Snyder's Justice League star Kiersey Clemons will also be appearing in the movie which is set to stream on Amazon Prime Video sometime next year.

The official synopsis for the rom-com reads: "Somebody I Used to Know follows workaholic Ally (Brie) who reunites with an ex-boyfriend (Ellis) on a trip to her hometown, a rendezvous that makes her start to question all of her prior life choices. The turn of events only gets more confusing when she meets Cassidy (Clemons), a younger woman who reminds her of the person she used to be."

Franco said the couple are excited to get going with the project.

"Alison and I love romantic comedies and were inspired by the classics from the 80s and 90s," Franco said in a statement. "We couldn't be more excited about working with Jay and Kiersey, who are both extremely natural performers, capable of bringing levity and drama in equal measure.
