Elizabeth Banks and Leslie Mann are attached to star in What Was I Thinking? for New Line Cinema. The story is based on a book of the same name by Barbara Davilman and Liz Dubelman. It revolves around a quartet of female friends who embark on a ski trip after one of them ends up dumped during her engagement party. The dumped woman is then whisked away by her friends for a therapeutic getaway in order to help her heal and learn to have fun again. There will also be several subplots, which will be flashbacks that center on "worst ex-boyfriend" reflections among the other friends.
Producers are deeming the film both a chick flick and relationship story that focuses on females and how they come to rely on one another for survival. Mann will play a woman who jumps around from man to man, no pun intended, without ever settling down into a serious relationship. Banks' character will be a woman on the rebound. There are two other lead female roles yet to be cast.
