Julia Roberts is set to star in romantic comedy SEVEN-YEAR SWITCH after she gives birth to twins in the new year (05).

The OSCAR winner, 36, is in talks to play a woman fast approaching the seventh year of a relationship when she starts to experience the proverbial itch and wonders what might have been if she had made different choices in her life.

The FRANK CAPRA-esque film will be directed by Mike Nichols, who also helmed Roberts' forthcoming movie, CLOSER.

Meanwhile, the actress is currently on maternity leave, after spending the summer (04) in Europe filming sequel OCEAN'S TWELVE opposite George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
