TV writer and producer Cindy Chupack (Modern Family) is set to make her feature directorial debut with Whatever Makes You Happy, which has Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney and Arrow star Stephen Amell in talks to star.
Whatever Makes You Happy is an adaptation of the popular William Sutcliffe novel which follows three lifelong friends who head to New York to visit their sons.
Suburban mothers Helen, Carol and Gillian, who have been friends since their 28 year-old-sons were in grade school, all have boys living in New York City. None of them ever call their mothers, and seem to have no sense of direction or responsibility. Feeling marginalized and forgotten, the women impulsively decide to visit their sons unannounced, discovering that their sons' lives may not be the only ones that need fixing in the process.
Shooting is scheduled to begin June 2015.
