How To Be Single - new film project
News of Dan's latest film project has been shared online. The Hollywood Reporter has details of the romantic comedy.
Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Dan Stevens and Leslie Mann are in negotiations to star in New Line's romantic comedy How to Be Single.
Christian Ditter (Love, Rosie) will helm the film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Liz Tuccillo, published by Atria in 2008.
The film is an ensemble comedy, said to be similar in style to other projects with multiple, intersecting storylines like He's Just Not That Into You and Valentine's Day. The story focuses on singlehood from both the female and male perspectives, and suggests it is not our relationships, but our single times in between, that define us. Topics of single life that will be explored include blind dating, when to get married, casual sex and fear of commitment.
Alison Brie, who was circling the film in mid-2014, is also in final negotiations as the film gears up to shoot in April in New York. The comedy is slated for release just in time for Valentine's Day on Feb. 12, 2016.
Photos of Dan attending the House of Speakeasy Gala have been shared on Zimbio, while a new interview has been shared by Tristate.
