From the writers of He’s Just Not That Into You comes the movie Three’s Company!
New Line wants you to come and knock on its door.
The studio is in negotiations to pick up the rights to the classic television series Three’s Company, and is tapping scribes Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the duo behind its 2009 hit He’s Just Not That Into You, to pen the screenplay.
Robert Cort, the veteran producer whose credits range from Tom Cruise’s 1980s’ Cocktail to Julia Roberts’ Runaway Bride, is attached to produce.
Three’s Company was a top 10 show that aired on ABC from 1977 to 1984 and centered on the friendship forged between two single women living in Santa Monica who took in a man as a roommate, this in an age when such cohabitation was not a social norm. To keep the arrangement kosher with the landlords, the trio concocted a story saying the man had no ill intentions towards the women because he was gay. A comedy of errors, with plenty of innuendo, ensued week after week for eight seasons.
