Julia Roberts will re-team with director Ryan Murphy in her next movie.

The pair have impressed Sony with their efforts on forthcoming film 'Eat, Pray, Love' that the studio have made "one of the year's biggest pitch deals" and paired them up for another, as-yet untitled, romantic comedy.

According to Deadline.com, the movie sees the 'Valentine's Day' actress play a working mother whose husband looks after their children - until she loses her job and the couple are forced to swap roles.

Brad Pitt's Plan B production company - which worked on 'Eat, Pray, Love' - will also be involved in the next project.

Despite their joint workings, Ryan - who will make a reported $5 million for writing and directing the new film - recently dismissed speculation that Julia is set to make a guest appearance on his show 'Glee'.

The creator of the US drama said: "No, Julia will not be doing the show."

Ryan is also currently pitching to direct the forthcoming movie version of stage show 'Wicked'.

'Eat, Pray, Love' is scheduled for release in September.
