Variety reports that Michael De Luca and the Weitz brothers are making a date with The Game, the bigscreen adaptation of Neil Strauss' book about pickup artists, for Columbia Pictures.

Chris Weitz is penning the script, which is based on Strauss' undercover account of a community of pickup artists -- aka AFC's or "average frustrated chumps" -- trying to bed HB's (hot babes). The guru of the group is a man named Mystery, who dispenses advice on the art of seduction using the mantra "FMAC": find, meet, attract, close.

De Luca is producing with Depth Of Field's Chris and Paul Weitz. Depth of Field prexy Andrew Miano is exec producing. Josh Bratman is overseeing for De Luca.
