Gabriele Muccino has signed on to direct the drama, A Little Game Without Consequence for Focus Features.

The film is based on the French play by Gerard Sibleyras that was turned into a French movie in 2004. It follows a seemingly perfect couple who pretend to break up, only to realize that their friends never liked them as couple to begin with, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Allan Loeb is writing the screenplay for the English-language version of A Little Game Without Consequence; there's no production schedule for the film as of yet.
