The script, titled BYO (for Bring Your Own), concerns two very different twentysomething women who, after finding themselves unlucky in love, decide to throw a party to which each female attendee brings an eligible bachelor. The executives who've read the script describe it as a female-themed Superbad.
Natalie Portman will star as one of the female leads and produce the movie, and the studio executives said they'd been told Anne Hathaway has expressed interest in the second lead role. The project, which has been passed on by several Hollywood studios, could still get made via either a studio or independent financing.
No production date has been set.
