Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams are set to star in the romantic drama "Take This Waltz," says Deadline Hollywood.

According to Deadline Hollywood: Sarah Polley has secured the financing to direct her script “Take This Waltz.” Williams will star with Seth Rogen in as a character who gets wrapped in a romantic triangle.

The script made the most recent Black List of 2009's best-unproduced screenplays. Polley will set another actor shortly to round out the cast.

The story follows a young woman (Williams) who struggles with her infidelities and the budding realization that she may be addicted to the honeymoon period of her relationships.

Polley’s last directorial effort, 2006's “Away From Her,” which earned her a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nomination. Williams, will next be seen in the Martin Scorsese-directed Shutter Island, while Rogen has been busy filming “The Green Hornet”.

Although Polley is more known for her acting, she is really changing up that image in recent years. She has shown great skills at directing, as well as writing, including a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay a couple years ago. I also like that fact that Rogen will be in a role where he can show off some of his acting chops, which I don’t think he gets enough credit for.

Filming kicks off this July in Toronto.
