Modern LoveSadly, David Bowie's classic 1983 song 'Modern Love' is not getting the film treatment; instead Columbia has inked a deal with the New York Times for potentially developing a film based on the paper's Sunday Styles "Modern Love" column.

According to Variety, the film version of the column -- a story revolving around sex, love and romance written by a different author each week -- follows the recent HBO pilot written by Jenny Bicks ('Sex and the City') with Alan Poul ('Six Feet Under'). The show would follow a fictional male editor going through the perils and pitfalls of dating post-divorce, while the film deal will develop movies based on real-life stories behind the paper's columns.
