In a story from Variety it seems that Mandate Pictures bought a pitch from writer D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity) that is based on Bob Powers' book You Are a Miserable Excuse for a Hero.

The comedy, which currently doesn't have a name, looks at a guy who is put in a bunch of awkward circumstances following the dissolution of a blind date. The book came out last year from St. Martin's Griffin.

"I wanted to drop the most indecisive man on the planet and his idiot friends into a fast-moving action movie and see what happens," DeVincentis says about the project.
