According to Variety, director Harold Ramis and Topher Grace have logged on to a Universal romantic comedy based on the popular online service Friendster. Gustin Nash has been set to write the script.
Ramis and Grace will develop the film with Double Features partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher, who'll produce. Shamberg and Sher made a deal last year with Friendster CEO Jonathan Abrams to use the friendship and networking site as the catalyst for a romantic comedy.
Their pitch intrigued Ramis as well as Grace, who is wrapping his tenure on "That '70s Show" and who starred In Good Company for U. Each will have input in the draft Nash is working on.
Sher said Grace sparked to the chance to play a character looking for love while navigating technology such as instant messaging, camera phones and Internet porn.
