Paul Rudd has signed on and Jason Segel is in negotiations to star in DreamWorks’ comedy “I Love You, Man.”

“Along Came Polly” helmer John Hamburg, who inked a two-year overall deal with DreamWorks in April, will direct.

Donald De Line is producing alongside Hamburg. Ivan Reitman, Tom Pollock, Bill Johnson and Jeff Clifford exec produce.

Rudd and Segel last teamed up in Judd Apatow’s summer comedy “Knocked Up.” The pair also recently wrapped another Apatow project, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” which Segel penned.

Rudd next appears in the Apatow-produced John C. Reilly starrer “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” His credits also include “The Ten,” which he produced, and the upcoming “Little Big Men,” which he co-wrote.

Segel is a star on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother.”
