Warner Independent Pictures and Maguire Entertainment have acquired the Atlantic Monthly article “Marry Him! The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough” reports the trades.
Article author Lori Gottlieb is turning it into a book called “Marry Him! Finding Mr. Real” and the studio has acquired both the article and book rights.
Gottlieb is a 40-year old single mother who conceived her baby through donor sperm. Hardened by the burdens of raising a child alone, she posts the notion that there is no such thing as a dream guy.
“Spider-Man” actor Tobey Maguire will produce the project.
