In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Charles Shyer is going to direct BFF for Wind Dancer Films.

BFF is a female buddy comedy that centers on childhood best friends who come together "years later in Manhattan and discover that one has become successful while the other remains stalled in their small hometown."

Hallie Shyer and Ellen Greenberg are presently rewriting an original script that was written by Vanessa Parise and Robin Dunne.

Wind Dancer bought the spec script a year ago and has budgeted the film at $20 million. Shooting is slated to start in the spring.
