The project is described as a female-centric version of "The Odd Couple."
Steven Antin, who directed the Cher-Christina Aquilera dance movie Burlesque, is set to direct The Girlfriend, a comedy from Gold Circle.
Eric Schade wrote the screenplay, which centers on a successful career woman who discovers that her "perfect" husband is having an affair with a woman who is her opposite in every way. Upon learning that the mistress is looking for a roommate, the wife decides to move in with her enemy, sabotage the affair and win her husband back.
The project is described as being in the tone of The Odd Couple.
Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks will produce with Lisa Tornell (Igby Goes Down), who will produce via her Tornell Productions banner.
Gold Circle exec Brad Kessell will oversee the project. The company’s Scott Niemeyer will exec produce.
Antin began his career as a child actor (he appeared in The Goonies) and made his directorial debut with Burlesque, which he also wrote.
He is repped by UTA.
