Actress Lily Collins spent much of last year stuck in franchise panic, as planned heavyweight “The Mortal Instruments” weathered delays and production halts following the first installment’s poor critical and box office reception. Her long-term duty to Cassandra Clare’s series remains uncertain, but for now she’s signed on to another adaptation: “How To Be Single," based on Liz Tuccillo’s novel, written for the screen by Marc Silverstein and Abby Kohn, and produced by Drew Barrymore.

Blended Drew Barrymore Adam Sandler
Oh, the perils of being a female filmmaker in Hollywood. Finally making her directorial debut after a lifetime in front of the camera with 2009’s charming “Whip It,” Drew Barrymore has struggled to launch a feature length follow-up and though she is returning to the romantic comedy well, it’s not in the manner one would hope.

'He's Just Not that Into You' Team Joins Her For Multi-Story FilmDrew Barrymore is one of those stars that has recently broken out of the original mold that Hollywood cast for her. She directed her first feature "Whip It" in 2009 to critical, if not financial, success and was nominated for an Emmy and won a Golden Globe for her performance in the television miniseries "Grey Gardens" in the same year. She still continues, however, to stick to her genre of choice -- the romantic comedy -- starring in last year's smart, yet predictable rom-com "Going the Distance." So it's no surprise that for her second directorial feature, THR reports, she'll be taking on another romantic comedy, "How to be Be Single," based on the eponymous book by Liz Tuccillo.
