A How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days TV Show Is In The Works

A modern take on the 2003 romantic comedy is in development with Paramount TV.

In a time when nostalgia is in style, reboots are ten to the dozen and binge-worthy series take precedence over film, it should be no surprise to anyone that How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days is getting a 2019 redo. 

According to E! News, a modern revival of one of the most highly referenced romantic comedies of the early 2000s is in development at the upcoming mobile-based streaming platform, Quibi.

Not much is known about the forthcoming project, but it will be written by Guy Branum, a writer responsible for shows such as The Mindy Project and Awkward.

Branum tweeted about the news on Thursday, assuring fans that he would be faithful to the guilty pleasure–worthy source material.

"We were all certain you could not make a good romantic comedy anymore because print media is dead and RomCom ladies have to work at magazines, but against the tides of history, Quibi & Paramount have agreed to let me re-write "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days"," he wrote.

He replied to his original tweet with a gif of McConaughey in the movie, adding, "I will be observing and consulting numerous photos of shirtless Matthew McConaughey to properly research this task."

The original film followed Composure columnist Andie Anderson (Hudson) and ad executive Benjamin Barry (McConaughey) as they each wager their own games of the heart.

Ben is attempting to get a woman to fall in love with him in the allotted timespan, while Andie's mission is to lose him.

No release dates are available as of yet.
