The actress is still in talks for the female leading role in the project.
Recently debuted in Broadway production of "Cyrano de Bergerac", Jennifer Garner is currently engaged in negotiations to take starring part in comedy feature "This Side of the Truth", The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
Project has already had British funnyman Ricky Gervais to topline. Garner is said to be up for the role of a beautiful woman whose heart Gervais' character is trying to win over despite the fact that she is way out of his league.
Apart from starring, Gervais is also set to both co-write and co-direct alongside Matt Robinson. Shooting is scheduled to start this spring with Lynda Obst and Oly Obst producing for Media Rights Capital.
