Writers Keith Merryman and David A. Newman have signed on to adapt Steve Harvey's bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man for Screen Gems.

According to Variety, the battle-of-the-sexes project will be produced by Will Packer via his Rainforest Films banner. Harvey will serve as exec producer alongside Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy.

It is based on a relationship advice book, written in Harvey's comedic voice, which has sold more than 1.4 million copies and is being printed in 26 different languages. The book sheds light on everything from why men are in the fixing business and not the talking business to why independent women should reconnect with their girlish side to make their men feel necessary.

No production date has been set.
