Jake Szymanski is directing the Universal movie from a script by Adam McKay’s former assistant Lauryn Kahn
After “Les Miserables” and Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” Universal is sticking with Amanda Seyfried, who just closed a deal to star in “He’s F-ing Perfect,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are producing through their Gary Sanchez banner along with Kevin Messick. Jake Szymanski is directing from a script by McKay’s former assistant Lauryn Kahn, who originally sold the project as a seven-figure spec to Fox 2000. Good Universe will also produce.
The story follows a girl who’s pessimistic about love and uses social media to vet her friends’ dates. When she finds what looks like the perfect guy, she decides to use her web-sleuthing skills to turn herself into his perfect match.
Seyfried, who just signed on to star opposite Russell Crowe in “Fathers and Daughters,” is repped by Innovative Artists.
