New Line Pictures and Wendy Finerman Productions are co-producing Jill Smolinski’s
In Smolinski’s story, her heroine’s life changes forever when she decides to complete a list started by a new acquaintance who dies next to her in a car crash. The list includes simple acts like going braless all the way to the hard stuff like pitching a new idea at work and on to the monumental — changing someone’s life. It’s written in a straight-forward, witty style with a momentum that carries it swiftly forward.
Barnes says ". . . List will be joining a growing slate of so called 'girly' films that New Line is scheduling for the coming year." She also refers to films for those of the "female persuasion."
Girly stuff is not frivolous, it’s fun. We can be serious and deep, but we also like to be silly. I’ve tried to get my significant other to be more girly when we watch television together. I can leave it off. He can't. I don't even want to go into the dynamics of remote-control-dominion.
