CBS Films announced today that Andy Fickman (Parental Guidance, The Game Plan) is attached to direct the romantic comedy The Exes. The film is based on the book The Ex Files by Jane Moore with the screenplay written by Kelly Bowe. It will be produced by Leonard Goldberg.
The Exes follows the ex-girlfriend of the groom, who reluctantly agrees to attend his destination wedding for closure and for friendship. Once there, she finds herself trapped at an island resort with all of couples' exes. Old flames are rekindled, new romances are born and complete chaos ensues.
Andy Fickman had this to say in a statement.
"I absolutely love this project. It's a fun and fresh unique perspective within the romantic comedy world. Every time I mention the story to someone they immediately respond with how it relates to their own life - which makes this such a universal experience... anyone who has loved before has lost before. I'm also excited to work with CBS Films and a chance to work with legendary producer Leonard Goldberg is icing on the cake!"
Andy Fickman is represented by WME and Management 360.
Vice President of Production Mark Ross and Creative Executive Alex Ginno are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
