That’s right, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is set to become a movie, thanks to Summit, who bought the rights the story, which had previously been in development at Fox 2000. The sad thing is, it’s not surprising that they’re making a movie out of a storyless, 1992, research-driven guide book. The surprising part is that it’s taken them this long. Cue the asinine PR quote:
“‘Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus’ is not just the title of a book, or what we know will become an amazing film and TV franchise – it is a pop cultural mainstay and comically, sadly, romantically, all too often still true these many years after first being published,” said Eric Feig, Summit’s president of production.

Hmm… so would you consider it comic, tragic, or romantic that I want to punch you in the kidneys until you piss blood? I don’t get it, are people worried that it’ll make them look bad if they talk like a human being in a press release? Anyway, still no word on how they plan to turn this book into a movie, but dollars to donuts it involves Ashton Kutcher and an assh*le kid in a stupid hat.
Women be shoppin’.
