"Clerks" writer/director Kevin Smith will develop a sex comedy titled "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" for The Weinstein Company.

Delving into raunchy theme, Kevin Smith has come onboard to direct "" which he described to the Los Angeles Times as "bawdy sex comedy with heart."

Project focuses on two friends who have managed to trudge into their 30s with a satisfying lack of accomplishment. However, a 15-year high school reunion and dire rent problems later prompt them to an idea of making together an amateur porn enterprise.

"It's ... dirty, with nudity," the Red Bank-born filmmaker told the paper. "But funny nudity, not gratuitous nudity."

Filming is planned to start February next year in Minnesota under The Weinstein Company banner. It is said that actress , who previously worked with Smith in "", has already been offered the script for the flick and is supposed to give it a read this week.
