With Stay Cool and Manure in the halls of 2009, the Polish Brothers are looking forward. Variety reports that the pair are gearing up for a new film called For Lovers Only. Michael Polish will direct, Mark Polish wrote the script, and the latter will star alongside Stana Katic, who's currently steaming up the boob tube opposite Nathan Fillion on Castle.

Said to be inspired by the French New Wave and Claude Lelouch's 1966 double Oscar-winner A Man and a Woman, the romance focuses on a journalist (Katic) in Paris on assignment, who runs into a lover (Polish) from her past. Presumably enraptured by reconciliation, the pair flee Paris and travel "by train, car, and motorcycle as their love affair takes them across France from Normandy to St. Tropez."

Stana Katic traveling across France is intriguing enough, but here's something to further whet your appetite: This incarnation is a bit different than Lelouch's film, which focuses on a widow and widower who meet and have a whirlwind love affair. However, Lelouch's film is a lot like Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise and Sunset. It wrapped with an ambiguous ending, and then the couple were revisited 20 years later when she wants to film the story of their fling in 1986's A Man and a Woman: 20 Years Later.

Should the Polish Brothers stick to the idea of a fling that may or may not end, we might just have a new indie romance to plague our movie-going minds with anticipation and romanticism, and whether they hold their own against Linklater's powerhouse or not, I'm eager to see them try. How about you?
