Serial dater Drew Barrymore will produce the film adaptation of How to be Single. The film will be a romantic comedy—Barrymore's speciality—and is based on the best-selling novel of the same name, written by Liz Tuccillo. New Line has obtained the rights, with Barrymore's Flower Films producing. The book was published in June 2008 to much fanfare.
The novel and the film chronicle the dating lives of five single New York women, one of whom is writing a book about bachelorettes the world over. This leads the authoress to embark on an international affair, while her friends at home continue to navigate the brutal NYC dating scene. It has not been determined if Barrymore, who has had plenty of career success playing romantic leads, will also accept a role in the film. Barrymore produced and stars in the forthcoming ensemble romcom, He's Just Not That Into You.
