BREAKING: Amanda Seyfried has been set to star in the Jake Szymanski-directed He’s F-ing Perfect, based on the script by Lauryn Kahn that will be produced by Gary Sanchez. Seyfried will play a social media-savvy girl who is pessimistic about love and vets her friends’ dates to find flaws. When that process leads her to uncover the perfect guy, she decides to use her Internet research skills to turn herself into his perfect match.
The script originally was bought by Fox 2000 in a $1 million-against-$1.5 million deal, at a time when Emma Stone was being eyed. The project stalled there, but Universal picked it up and gave it second life. Kahn is Adam McKay’s former assistant, and Szymanski got the job after helming some of the best comic spots for Gary Sanchez’s website Funny Or Die. The film will be produced by Gary Sanchez’s McKay and Will Ferrell and Kevin Messick. Good Universe is also producing.
The Innovative-repped Seyfried just shot A Million Ways To Die In The West for Seth MacFarlane and is booked to star with Russell Crowe in the Gabriele Muccino-directed Fathers And Daughters.
