Movie Adaptation Of “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” Shoots This Summer!
Long time readers of this site will recall our announcement back in the summer of 2009, when Will Packer (Stomp The Yard, Obsessed, Takers) of the burgeoning production powerhouse, Rainforest Films, along with Screen Gems, acquired the film rights to the book, which was atop the New York Times Best Sellers List for at least 6 straight months.
Well, 2 years later (how time flies) according to a series of tweets by Mr Packer himself just minutes ago, the screenplay adaptation is apparently done, with the film scheduled to shoot this summer.
To wit… Packer tweeted: “MY NEXT MOVIE BASED ON @IAmSteveHarvey’s bestseller “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” shoots this summer… All my real up and coming actors stay tuned for casting info… All my 15MIN OF FAME ppl stay tuned to learn how you can win a walk on role. I’ll be on @IAmSteveHarvey’s show next Tues to give details.”
And you know I’ll be listening for those details, so that I can share here.
Packer didn’t mention anything further, notably who will direct and who has been cast, etc. But we’ll find out soon enough.
Given that Harvey’s book isn’t a fictional narrative (although some may disagree :)), it’s anyone’s guess how Packer and company have translated the content to script.
I haven’t read Steve Harvey’s book, so maybe those of you who have can chime in…
