Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, who played a married couple in Brokeback Mountain, are in negotiations to reunite for Love And Other Drugs, an adaptation of Jamie Reidy’s nonfiction book Hard Sell: The Evolution Of A Viagra Salesman. Formerly titled Pharma, the film is being directed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond) from a script by Charles Randolph (The Interpreter)

Reidy was a drug rep for Pfizer in the late 1990s who eventually wrote a memoir that shined a light on the practices of the pharmaceutical industry. Gyllenhaal will play the salesman, who begins a relationship with a woman who has Parkinson’s (Hathaway) while on one of his sales calls. Hathaway was in talks to star with Tobey Maguire in the film Tokyo Suckerpunch, but couldn’t make the scheduling work.
