Whitewater options 'Guy'

'Akeelah and the Bee' producer also on board

Whitewater Films and "Akeelah and the Bee" producer Reactor Films have optioned Amy Morland and Vicki Rocco's romantic comedy screenplay "The Transitional Guy."

The film centers on struggling writer who uses his own dating experiences for a book and becomes known as the perfect "transitional guy" for women just leaving relationships. Problems arise when he falls for one of his temporary dates.

Whitewater's Rick Rosenthal, Reactor's Danny Llewelyn and Trent Broin will produce the project. Michael Romersa is attached as an executive producer.

The project will be the first partnership between Reactor and Whitewater, which recently wrapped production on "Greta" starring Hilary Duff, Evan Ross and Ellen Burstyn.
