New Line Cinema has purchased to rights to adapt Jill Smolinski's book "The Next Thing on My List" to the big screen.
Female audiences sure are getting special attention from film companies as film projects targeted for them keep flowing on. In the wake of "P.S. I Love You" and "Kiss & Tango", New Line Cinema is on the move to develop a tale of a woman's journey of self-discovery in "The Next Thing on My List."
Based on Jill Smolinski's upcoming second novel of the same title, the flick will revolve on the woman's life account after a freak car crash she has experienced that left her 24-year-old passenger dead. Later finding out that a list of things the dead woman wanted to do by age 25, she then decides to do all the items listed to honor her.
No words yet on who will direct and star, but it has been confirmed that Wendy Finerman is onboard to produce. An Oscar-winning producer, she last produced "The Devil Wears Prada", adapted from a tome by Lauren Weisberger, which turned out to be a box-office hit last year, pulling almost $325 million worldwide.
