According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rob McKittrick is swooping in to direct The Wingman for New Line Cinema. Written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the romantic comedy centers on a man who, as a "wingman," is uncannily gifted at helping his friends pick up women. When he finally falls in love, it's with the one woman who can resist his powers.

McKittrick's directorial debut, Waiting, which he also wrote, is slated for release from Lions Gate in October. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris, and Justin Long. McKittrick also is writing and directing Mancrush at New Line.
