What To Expect When You’re Expecting Will Be Adapted as Romantic Comedy

We never expected we’d have to write that headline. Moviegoers will soon be treated to a romantic comedy based on the parenting handbook, What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

The 600-page handbook by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel has helped millions of expectant parents (including this GalleyCat editor) cope with pregnancy. Currently, there are 14.5 million copies of the book in print.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop: “Lionsgate has confirmed that they will adapt the bestselling pregnancy bible What To Expect When You’re Expecting and intend to give it the Love Actually and Valentine’s Day treatment. In other words, we’ll see a series of intertwining vingnettes with enough star wattage to blind most any moviegoer.” (Via Jezebel)
