According to Variety, director Ken Kwapis, whose resume includes the less-than-stellar feature The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the upcoming License to Wed and the pilot of TV's The Office has been tapped to direct the relationship comedy He's Just Not That Into You for New Line Cinema. The project, based on the bestselling book by former Sex and the City writers Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, is being produced by the super-cute Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen through their Flower Films production company.

No word yet on casting for the film, and particularly whether Barrymore will actually be in the movie or will just be producing. Since it seems so much up her alley, I think it's only a matter of time before an announcement is made that Barrymore will star in the film. Really, this is exactly the kind of project she usually likes to make. Romantic comedies with quirky relationships, big obstacles, some hardships and love finally conquering all at the end. Go watch The Wedding Singer, Fever Pitch or 50 First Dates. On top of that, the writers who are adapting this film from the book, Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, also wrote another romantic comedy in which Barrymore starred, the somewhat delightful Never Been Kissed. No word yet on a start or release date for the film either.
