The movie is based on a book by Liz Tuccillo and is said to be in the same vein as He’s Just Not That Into You and Valentine’s Day. It follows the loves lives and breakups of a group of New Yorkers over the course of a decade.
Christian Ditter is set to direct from a screenplay by Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn. Drew Barrymore is producing alongside Nancy Juvonen.
