Mindy Kaling co-wrote a romantic comedy and it sounds exactly like a romantic comedy that Mindy Kaling would write and let me warn you before we begin that the title is terrible, so let’s just get to it! From The Hollywood Reporter:
Anne Hathaway is attached to star in The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, a romantic comedy from Good Universe co-written by Mindy Kaling.
The story centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.
Kaling, who likely would take on a supporting role, co-wrote the Black List-charting script with Brent Forrester. The two are exec producing with Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. John Malkovich also executive produced via his Mr. Mudd Productions.
Nooooooo, grrrl! GET A NEW TITLE! Just call it Mindy’s Story! (Or, I guess, Anne’s Story.) Maybe the game should be “what should the NEW TITLE of Mindy Kaling’s romcom be.” I think I may have nailed it with Mindy’s Story, though. Or The Sad Life Of Mindy and Anne. Or Hott Guys + Nerd Grrls. All perfect and much better! Now that we have that settled let’s get back to the real game: What should the tagline be?! Let’s brainstorm together!
- “Self-esteem, we have a problem.”
- “She’s all that … LITERALLY.”
- “Picture the hottest guy? She didn’t.”
- “Hot guy, meet LIZZIE.”
- “He thinks she’s all that jazz.”
- “The true life story of Katherine Chloe Cahoon.”
YES! Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Sometimes you just nail it.
