Directing Jobs For Tim Story, Anthony Mandler

Tim Story (“Fantastic Four,” “Barbershop”) is next set to direct the film adaptation of comedian Steve Harvey’s book “Think Like a Man” reports Deadline.

Kevin Hart stars as a relationship expert who has suddenly found his own marriage in trouble. Harvey’s male-oriented relationship tips will be incorporated into the script.

Shooting kicks off in July for a release sometime next year.

Meanwhile, the site also reports that music video helmer Anthony Mandler is set to direct the action/romance thriller “Die in a Gunfight” for Media Rights Capital.

Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari penned the script about a “fight-prone and death-obsessed young society man who pursues a romance with the daughter of his father’s enemy.” Zac Efron starts in the lead role.

Mark Gordon and Jennifer Todd will produce. Mandler is set to direct both this and the vampire epic “Vlad” for Summit before the end of the year, though it’s unsure which will begin shooting first.
