Night School director Malcolm D. Lee has teamed back up with Universal for the romantic comedy How to Fall in Love with Anyone. According to Deadline, the film is based on the New York Times article “To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This” by Mandy Len Catron. The film will be produced by both Universal and Lee’s company, Blackmaled Productions.
The article hinged on a 1997 study that analyzed how intimacy between strangers could be created by having them ask each other 36 intensely personal questions. “Such questions proved to bring together countless couples and in some cases save marriages,” states Deadline.
In a way, it sounds like it could be a film that could bring in the Think Like a Man crowd, since both films are similar in how it explores how intimacy and relationships are built and strengthened.
With successful films like Girls Trip, The Best Man, The Best Man Holiday and now Night School under his belt, it makes sense to expect that this film could become yet another feather in Lee’s cap.
