Do you like Steve Harvey’s life philosophies, but abhor reading books? Well then this post is right in your wheelhouse, as Tim Story has been named director of Think Like a Man, an (shudder) ensemble comedy, based on the funnyman’s book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.
Story has directed both the Fantastic Four films, as well Barbershop, so I think we can expect Michael Chiklis, a CGI Silver Surfer, and a bunch of middle-aged black dudes sassin’ the hell out of each other. This is going to be my new favorite movie.
The adaptation will focus on a character played by Kevin Hart, who claims to be a relationship expert, constantly doling out advice to friends while unable to manage his own love life. That’s a hell of a paradox ya got there, Mr. Harvey.
The book has sold more than 2 million copies, which sadly, is probably more than the total sales of J.D. Salinger and F. Scott Fitzgerald during the same time span. Of course, those guys were never Kings of Comedy. (Deadline)
