Columbia Pictures has tapped Paul Weiland to helm the romantic comedy Made of Honor, starring Patrick Dempsey.

When the woman asks Dempsey's character to be her maid of honor, he agrees with the intention of winning her heart. The studio, which bought Sztykiel's spec script in April 2003, is searching for a female lead.

Neal Moritz is producing through his Sony-based Original Film shingle. Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone are executive producing alongside Original's Tania Landau.

Sony's Amy Baer and Adam Milano are shepherding the project for the studio.

Weiland, whose helming credits include Fine Line Features' Roseanna's Grave and City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold, most recently directed Working Title's Sixty Six, starring Helena Bonham Carter. The U.K. native also worked on several incarnations of the Mr. Bean TV series.
