Lionsgate longs for romantic '31 days'

Comedy spec from rookie scribe Corinne Kingsbury

Lionsgate Films has pre-emptively picked up the irreverent romantic-comedy spec "31 Days of Larry," written by newbie scribe Corinne Kingsbury.

Lionsgate vp production Jim Miller brought the script into the studio and will oversee the project with director of development Matthew Janzen.

It's the first industry deal for Kingsbury, who is repped by WMA and Fuse Entertainment.
