Steve Pink to remake “About Last Night,” “Think Like A Man” producers attached

PanARMENIAN.Net - Steve Pink is in talks to direct Sexual Perversity In Chicago, the Screen Gems remake of the 1986 film About Last Night, Deadline said.

The film, scripted by Bachelorette‘s Leslye Headland, is on a fast track for an early fall start. Michael Ealy is starring (in the role originated by Rob Lowe) alongside Kevin Hart (in the Jim Belushi role), and Screen Gems is already looking for a young actress to play the Demi Moore love interest role while Regina Hall has been rumored for the other female lead, played originally by Elizabeth Perkins. The film right now is going by the original title of the David Mamet play about two single guys and their sex lives in the 70s.

The film is being produced by Will Packer and Will Gluck, the hit making producer duo. Packer produced Think Like A Man, the Screen Gems hit comedy that starred Ealy and Hart, and he’s got such films coming up as Ride Along with Hart and Ice Cube and Tim Story directing, and No Good Deed, which stars Idris Elba. Gluck produced/directed Easy A and Friends With Benefits, both of which were hits for Clint Culpepper’s shingle.

Pink, who directed Accepted and Hot Tub Time Machine, is separately in talks to helm the Bad Santa sequel, something that will happen after Sexual Perversity in Chicago, if they keep that title. UTA and Mosaic rep Pink.
