Drew Barrymore to direct romantic comedy

LOS ANGELES - Drew Barrymore plans to direct her second movie, "How to Be Single," a romantic comedy comedy based on a 2008 novel of the same name.

"Single" explores the loves lives and break-ups of a group of New Yorkers over the course of ten years. Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn wrote the adaptation of Liz Tuccillo's book.

The New Line project will be in the vein of the studio's successful multi-story pictures such as "He's Just Not That Into You" and "Valentine's Day." ("Single" actually is a reteaming of the "Not That Into You" team; Barrymore and production partner Nancy Juvonen produced that movie while Silverstein and Kohn wrote the script.)

Barrymore made her directing debut in 2009 with "Whip It," the well-regarded female-centric roller derby flick starring Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, and Marcia Gay Harden. She recently wrapped a starring turn in the environmental movie "Whales."
