Actors Jessica Biel and Gerard Butler have sparked rumours of hooking up after they met at the set of their new movie, Playing the Field.

'From the beginning of the shoot, they were flirting with each other. But Biel didn't want things to get weird on the set,' the New York Daily News quoted a source close to the set of the actors' upcoming movie, as saying.

'They basically tried not to hook up,' the insider said.

Early last month, the source said that Biel had invited the 41-year-old Butler to accompany her for a weekend in New York.

'When they returned to the set on Monday, you could see and feel the difference in their relationship. You got the sense that they were together,' the source said.

According to Us Weekly, Butler 'made a beeline for Jessica' when he arrived and 'was really flirting with her' at a crewmember's birthday party.
 
Another witness told People.com that Biel and Butler 'looked like a couple' at a cast and crew dinner that took place before filming even began.

'Butler has a large personality, and everyone, including Jessica, gets caught up in his world,' A source also told the site.

Although representatives for Biel and Butler had initially dismissed reports of a romance, the story gained new life after the Lost actress was spotted with her arms wrapped around the 300 star's waist as he rode his Harley-Davidson in Malibu.

Salman Rushdie to make sci-fi TV series

Salman Rushdie, who believes that quality TV drama is now the best way of widely communicating ideas and stories than films or novels, is set to make a sci-fi television series.

The new work, to be called The Next People is being made for Showtime, a US cable TV network.

'It's like the best of both worlds. You can work in movie style productions, but have proper control,' the Guardian quoted him as saying.

According to Rushdie, the plot would be based on factual science but would contain elements of the supernatural or extra-terrestrial.

Showtime has announced that the hour-long drama will deal with the fast pace of change in modern life, covering the areas of politics, religion, science, technology and sexuality.

Rushdie has written the first draft of the script and will executive-produce the show, alongside British producers Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Shelley McCrory, the former NBC executive who runs the company's TV projects.
