Witherspoon, Buckley Land On “Venus”

Bryan Buckley is set to make his feature directing debut on the film adaptation of classic self-help book “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” at Lionsgate Summit says Deadline.

Dr. John Gray’s famous series, first published in 1992, views marital and relationship problems “in terms of distinct and pervasive gender differences”. Essentially it points out how men and women have different reasoning and thus how the same problem is perceived quite differently by the genders.

Over a dozen titles in the series have since been published. Reese Witherspoon will star in the project which scribes Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont have adapted. Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun will produce and shooting aims to kick off in January.
