He's not leaving Grey's Anatomy – but he's keeping the costume for a new movie.

Patrick Dempsey is joining the all-star cast of Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall's latest romantic comedy, Valentine's Day, which also features the filmmaker's original pretty woman, Julia Roberts, as well as Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts (Julia's niece) and Hector Elizondo (a Marshall staple), according to the Hollywood Reporter. Variety reports that Dempsey's Grey's costar, Eric Dane, will also appear.

The movie's multiple plots involve five various but connected stories in Los Angeles, where shooting started this week. Dempsey's role is that of an obstetrician dating Garner's character, who is unaware he's married. Ah, love.
