Not so fast; there are a ton of "f words" out there that aren't expletives. In fact, in this case, the title The F-Word is referring to friendship, not you know what. Okay, maybe that just took some of the fun out of this film, but considering Casey Affleck is in negations to star does mean the it's got potential.

According to THR, the Fox Searchlight romantic comedy will be directed by Alex Holdridge, a writing, directing and acting triple threat with a short list of credits, none of which I'm too familiar with. His 2008 film In Search of a Midnight Kiss is rocking a 84% on Rotten Tomatoes with critics praising his ability to convey the relationship between his leads, something that will come in handy when working on The F-Word.

Elan Mastai's script is based on T.J. Sawe and Michael Rinaldi's play Cigars and Toothpaste about a man and woman who run the risk of ruining their friendship at the expense of their romantic feelings for one another. With films like Alone in the Dark on Mastai's resume, it's easy to lose all hope for The F-Word, but it currently sits at #12 on ScriptShadow's list being described as a piece with "a thin premise, but it's the execution that sets this apart from all the other clones."
