How to be Single is a girl power flick as Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Leslie Mann are all currently in negotiations to star in the upcoming romantic comedy. The three funny femmes will join Alison Brie, who is all but officially locked down for the ensemble comedy. The plot follows characters, both male and female, as they try to navigate the single life while exploring topics of blind dating, casual sex, fear of commitments and marriage. The film is said to be on par with other relationship pics with multiple intersecting storylines like He’s Just Not That Into You and Valentine’s Day.
We know Brie from her comedic role in the popular TV series Community. She voices a few characters on the Netflix original animated series BoJack Horseman and can be seen in the upcoming Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart buddy comedy Get Hard. Wilson shined through with a small role in Bridesmaids and can be seen in the sequel to Pitch Perfect, slated for release in May. Dakota Johnson recently appeared in 21 Jump Street and The Five-Year Engagement and, if all goes as planned with Fifty Shades of Grey, will likely be a name we hear a lot more in the coming years. Mann, who has been making movie-watchers laugh since the ’90s, is playing Audrey Griswold in the upcoming John Francis Daley Vacation reboot, set to hit theaters in October. So there’s no doubt the cast, all who have comedic roots of some sort, lays a solid foundation for How to be Single. Drew Barrymore is the executive producer and the film plans to start shooting in New York this April with a release around Valentine’s Day of 2016.
