Director Steve Pink is best known for knock-about comedies like Hot Tub Time Machine and Accepted, but he’s planning to head in a slightly different direction as he’s now negotiations to take the helm on Screen Gems’ About Last Night remake, now called Sexual Perversity in Chicago.
Sexual Perversity in Chicago is the title of David Mamet’s original play that the 1986 Rob Lowe and Demi Moore film comedy About Last Night was adapted from. The story centres on a man (Michael Ealy) and a woman who strike up a romantic relationship, even though their friends aren’t happy about it.
Kevin Hart and Regina King are attached to star as Bernie Litgo and Joan, played by James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins in the original. They are still looking for the main female lead.
Leslye Headland (Bachelorette) is writing the script, with William Packer and Will Gluck (Think Like a Man) attached as producers. Production will start this fall. (Source: Deadline)
