Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are expected to star in the DreamWorks comedy "I Love You, Man."

Rudd is committed to the project, from "Along Came Polly" director John Hamburg, while Segel is in negotiations, according to Variety.

The film revolves around a guy who sets out to make a male friend to be the best man at his wedding. Production is expected to begin in March.

Rudd and Segel are both beneficiaries of the Judd Apatow Fun Factory. They co-starred in the summer hit "Knocked Up" and also appear together in the Apatow-produced "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," which Segel wrote.

Rudd will next be seen in the Apatow-produced "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," as well as "Little Big Men," which he co-wrote.

Segel, who previously starred in the beloved "Freaks & Geeks" (another Apatow production) is one of the leads in CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."
