Solitary Man duo Brian Koppelman and David Levien are set to write and direct The Game for MGM.

The film will be an adaptation of Neil Strauss's how-to book of the same name, which chronicled his adventures in becoming the world's greatest pick-up artist.

The Game has floated through may various different studios and directors over the years, only recently landing at MGM after Fox Searchlight passed on the project.

Brian Koppelman and David Levien plan to shoot soon and are already in the process of casting their pick-up artist. The Game may even be ready for release as early as next year.
