He's Just Not That Into You - The MOVIE

I have no idea how this will turn out, but am looking forward to it anyway.

Jennifer Aniston is the latest actress linked to "He's Just Not That Into You," a new comedy based on the bestselling book of the same title about the seemingly endless ways in which men and women misunderstand each other.Last seen in "The Break-Up," Aniston is in negotiations to star in the New Line Cinema ensemble comedy being directed by Ken Kwapis. If it all works out, Aniston will play a woman in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who will not commit to marriage.Scarlett Johansson has already signed on: She'll play a Pilates instructor and aspiring singer who finds herself in love with a married man. Also in the cast are Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper and Ginnifer Goodwin. Barrymore is producing the film through her Flower Films company.According to, the film will be set in Baltimore. It follows interconnecting story arcs dealing with the challenges of reading -- and misreading -- human behavior.The film fictionalizes the popular 2004 self-improvement book "He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys" that was co-written by stand-up comedian Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo"

And I'm psyched that Bradley Cooper is attached to this!

When Sydney Bristow would just pat Will Tippen on the head, or give him the friend-hug, I would be all yelling at the TV "Dammit, Sydney, come ON! Will Tippen is a total babe, and is so much less likely to try to kill you than Michael Vaughn, who is very cute but very suspicious!"

But then, Will Tippen may have gone crazy/been replaced by a Cyborg/turned into Carrot Top, and I would have been completely unaware as I stopped watching "Alias" after they kept changing the timeslot. I know. I need to invest in a TiVo.

Fingers crossed that Flower Films pulls this one off. Cause We're Just Not That Into It, if we only want to see it when we're drunk.
