Even though Ewan McGregor has had a rough summer with films such as The Island and Valiant, we can't help to still love the guy and follow all of his upcoming projects. That being said, it looks like Ewan McGregor, now done with Guys and Dolls, wants to try his hand at a solid comedy.

The Great Pretender Gets Ewan

According to Variety, Relativity Media has picked up Ewan McGregor for the comedy The Great Pretender, a film about two ambitious producers in the 1930s who hire the hell-raising Hollywood legend Leslie Grangely to play Bonnie Prince Charlie in a movie about Scotland's Jacobite Rebellion in the 18th century.

But when Grangely hits the bottle and disappears, they trick an unassuming extra with an uncanny likeness to the star to fill his shoes.

McGregor plays Grangely and the extra, as well as the two characters they play in the film-within-a-film -- Bonnie Prince Charlie, dubbed the 'Great Pretender,' and the double used by the prince to confuse his enemies.

You can also see Ewan McGregor in his upcoming thriller Stay, due out on October 21st.

Stay tuned for updates.
