Drew Barrymore is heading back to the director’s chair for an adaptation of Liz Tucillo’s bestseller How To Be Single.
The follow-up to the actress’ directorial debut, Whip It, the movie will revolve around a group of New Yorkers and their various dating adventures over the course of a decade, according to EW.com.

Barrymore is still deciding whether or not she’ll appear in the film, as she did in 2009’s Whip It. She is planning to shoot the movie on location this summer.

She says, “It’s hopefully, in a lot of ways, not a romantic comedy. People have this weird stigma with that word – it’s a turn-off to guys or whatever. But I think we’ve honed in on a style that will be more universal, a little bit ageless and not gender specific.”
