Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman will switch bodies in a new buddy comedy movie.

The pair has signed to play a family man and his lazy pal who are forced to swap roles in The Change-Up - which has been written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the scribes behind 2009 hit The Hangover.

A director has yet to be recruited, but Reynolds and Bateman, who starred together in 2006 movie Smokin' Aces, are expected to start work on the new film in September, reports Daily Variety.
