  • Jake Gyllenhaal set to star in movie with Reese Witherspoon love rival

    Jake Gyllenhaal could be set to star opposite girlfriend Reese Witherspoon’s ultimate love rival in a new movie.

    Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were married for seven years, but decided to formally separate in October 2006 when rumours emerged in the press that Ryan was having an affair with his Stop-Loss co-star, Abbie Cornish.

    Although the claims were never confirmed, Ryan is now dating Australian-born Abbie – and the actress is now lined up to appear in a new sci-fi movie with Reese’s new boyfriend, Jake Gyllenhaal.

    A source told intouchweekly.com: ‘This is one of those only-in-Hollywood situations. It could work out as long as Reese doesn’t visit Jake on the set.’

    The new film is about an expedition to the moon to start a lunar colony, and is due for release in 2010.

    Meanwhile, Abbie is also set to star in the upcoming Last Battle Dreamer opposite boyfriend Ryan.

    Jake and Reese met when they co-starred in 2007’s drama Rendition.

    Boy, Hollywood relationships are a complicated affair!
