Danny DeVito is to sit in the director's chair for indie comedy Honeymoon With Dad.

The Lorax and Batman Returns star, who is currently on a break between seasons of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, is apparently set to direct the romantic drama, which has been written by Scott Atkinson and Tegan West, reported Variety.

The film follows an accountant, left jilted at the altar, who has to spend his honeymoon with his estranged "larger-than-life" father, which Danny is also tipped to play.

Danny, who has separated from his wife Rhea Perlman after 30 years of marriage, is also a well-known director.

The 67-year-old started his career as a director with 1987 comedy Throw Momma From The Train, in which he also starred opposite Billy Crystal, and has also taken control of The War Of The Roses, Hoffa, Matilda, Death To Smoochy and Duplex.

He is completing post-production on indie thriller St Sebastian, which stars Prison Break's William Fichtner and Fringe's Lance Reddick.

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
