STORY: 4 Steps to Acing the World's Strictest Red Carpet

The movie tells of a co-dependent girl couple, one straight (Jacobs), one a lesbian (Meester) who act more like wives than best friends. When the straight girl meets a guy (Brody), the balance is upset and a passive-aggressive conflict ensues.

Gabourey Sidibe is also in the movie.

Red Crown, which has the Choose Your Own Adventure movie in development at Fox, and Haven Entertainment, behind The Electric Sky, produced the movie.

A release plan was not revealed.
