There's a right way to be single. A wrong way to be single. And then...There's Alice. And Robin. Lucy. Meg. Tom. David. New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle. And somewhere between the teasing texts and one-night stands, what these unmarrieds all have in common is the need to learn How to Be Single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love. Sleeping around in the city that never sleeps was never so much fun.
Warner Bros. has released the first hilarious trailer for How to Be Single. This new romantic comedy has an all-star ensemble cast led by Dakota Johnson. She first broke big in this past year's blockbuster romance Fifty Shades of Grey. But there will be no Christian Grey to help her through the heartbreak of living in the big city this time. She is joined by Rebel Wilson, who has already taken the world by storm as one of the Barden Bellas in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Now, instead of competing in an a cappella competition, she'll be competing for some poor lonely man's attention.
The cast of How to Be Single is rounded out by a stellar line-up of comedy heavy hitters, including Damon Wayans Jr. and Workaholics' Anders Holm. They will be joined by Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Jake Lacy and Nicholas Braun. Also along for the ride is the hilarious Jason Mantzoukas, who has proven to be the biggest scene stealer of this decade after making his first appearance in The League back in 2010.
Christian Ditter, best known for the indie hits Love, Rosie and French for Beginners directs this comedy. The screenplay is by Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein, a duo best known for their hits The Vow and He's Just Not That Into You. Dana Fox, known for Couples Retreat and What Happens in Vegas collaborated with the writers. The screen story was originated by Kohn & Silverstein based on the book of the same name by Liz Tucillo, who penned the best seller He's Just Not That Into You.
John Rickard and Fox are producing the film. Marcus Viscidi, Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Dave Neustadter, Michele Weiss, Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen are executive producers. Christian Ditter' behind-the-scenes creative team is headed by his frequent collaborator, director of photography Christian Rein, as well as production designer Steve Saklad, editor Tia Nolan and costume designer Leah Katznelson. The music is by Fil Eisler.
