One of the scripts on the 2008 Black List was Twenty Times a Lady, adapted by Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan from the novel by Karyn Bosnak. The basic premise is something of a tall tale, but it sounds like enough fun: a young woman wakes up one morning in the bed of her nasty boss and finds that she’s just hit her own personal ‘limit’ – he makes the 20th man she’s slept with. She refuses to break this limit so, in order to find ‘the one’ she finds herself trapped with only former contestants, as it were, being able to play for the prize.
The script is now set to be filmed, retitled What’s Your Number?, and set to team actress Anna Faris and director Mark Mylod. Very nice. I couldn’t be happier about this pairing because I’ve been counting both as real favorites for years now.
