Almost 20 years after it was published, the best-selling relationship bible "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus" is being turned into a movie.
Written by John Gray, the 1992 book, which sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, outlined the differences between the sexes and offered tips for building better communication. According to Deadline.com, Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan have been tapped to turn Gray's work into a romantic comedy.
Elfont and Kaplan are no strangers to making movies about love lost and found. Their previous projects include the 2010 Amy Adams-Matthew Goode film "Leap Year" and the 2008 Patrick Dempsey-Michelle Monaghan movie "Made of Honor."
No actors are yet attached to the "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus" project.
This is a big SHYTPILE in the making.
If this is another rom-com, i'm sure Jen Aniston will try to squeeze in.
Cant be any worse than You've got mail. I just hope they don't cast Gerard Butler for it.
And gays are from Uranus...
Dear God NO.
Just let these stay on the shelf at the bookstores a movie i dont think so how is it possible oh no
This book was so baaaaaaaaad the movie could only be worse. Just because 50 million copies of the book were sold doesn't mean that umpteen years later anyone still think this tripe is palatable or useful. John Gray go back into your delusional cave.
Hey, Johnnie, Who woulda guessed. Good luck!!
Why??? Oh,dear God, WHYYYYYYY?!?
And I really hope that any self-respecting actor will walk away from this dreadful project!
What's next? "Atkins Diet: The Movie?"
"Feng Shui: The Movie?" "The Betty Crocker Cookbook Movie?"
This will be terrible.
Thank God someone already said it! That was my first thought...
