Chris Brown has been tapped to appear in a new romantic comedy.

The film, 'Think Like a Man,' is based on comedian-TV personality Steve Harvey's bestselling 2009 self-help book, 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,' and follows "four interconnected and diverse friends [who] have their love lives shaken up after the women they are pursuing buy Steve Harvey's book and start taking his advice to heart."

Though his role is not yet known, the volatile young actor joins a star-studded female ensemble, including Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union and La La Vasquez, along with seasoned actors Michael Ealy and Jerry Ferrara.

'Think Like a Man' has already begun production in Los Angeles, Calif., and is scheduled for an April 6, 2012 release. The film will be helmed by 'Fantastic Four' director Tim Story and co-executive produced by Harvey.

"Hey @chrisbrown ! Congrats on landing a role in #actlikealady the movie! I'm proud of you man!" Harvey tweeted, in celebration of the news. "I love @chrisbrown because he deserves a 2nd chance as do we all."
