“White Collar” and “Chuck” hunk Matt Bomer is in negotiations to join the R-rated romantic comedy “What’s Your Number?” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on Karyn Bosnak’s book “20 Times a Lady,” the story follows a woman (Anna Faris) who thought she’d find her perfect guy by the time she’d slept with a maximum of twenty men.
Waking up after a drunken night in her boss’s bed, she realises she’s reached that limit but hasn’t achieved it. Rather than increasing the number or staying celibate, she tracks down all her ex-partners in an attempt to make things work with one of them.
Bomer will portray Faris’ dream guy. Ari Graynor is also in negotiations to play Faris’ soon to be wed sister whose wedding works as backdrop to much of the proceedings.
Chris Evans was attached to the film a few weeks ago but with him signing on to play Captain America, it’s speculated that Bomer has taken over the role that Evans was to play.
Mark Mylod (“Entourage”) is directing from a script by Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan. Shooting kicks off in May. Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing.
