New Line Cinema has optioned Liz Tuccillo's best-selling novel How To Be Single and will produce with Nancy Juvonen and Drew Barrymore's Flower Films.

Tuccillo is a former writer for Sex and the City and co-wrote the book He's Just Not That Into You, which was also acquired and produced by New Line Cinema/Warner Bros and Flower Films.

Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn will adapt the screenplay about dating and relationships in the modern age.

'We are thrilled to have the rights of the film which will enhance our position in the marketplace as the source for innovative romantic comedies,' New Line president Toby Emmerich said.
