Don't shoot the messenger.

Production has begun on Think Like a Man, the Tim Story-directed adaptation of Steve Harvey's best-selling "advice guide" for black women in relationships.

R&B crooner-turned-bad-boy Chris Brown and Meagan Good (Jumping the Broom, Californication) are the most recent cast members to be attached to the project.

In the film, four friends have their love lives shaken up after the women they are pursuing buy Harvey’s book and start taking his advice to heart. When the band of brothers find out that they have been betrayed by one of their own, they conspire to use the book’s teachings to turn the tables.

Brown and Good join a cast that includes Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara (Entourage), Regina Hall (Scary Movie, Law Abiding Citizen), Kevin Hart (Death At A Funeral), Taraji P. Henson, Terrance J (BET’s 106 & Park) and Gabrielle Union. Lala Vazquez (Two Can Play That Game) and Arielle Kebbel (Vampire Diaries, The Uninvited) also appear.

Think Like a Man is slated for release in April 2012.
