Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in The Rosie Project, a romantic comedy based on the book by Graeme Simsion.
I read the book last year and absolutely loved it. I certainly did not imagine Ryan Reynolds as its protagonist, Don.
The Rosie Project tells the story of a socially inept genetics professor who comes up with a scientifically sound survey to find the perfect mate.
His plans go awry when he meets Rosie, who in her whirlwind manner possesses all the opposite qualities he should be looking for.
The film was originally set up to star Jennifer Lawrence as Rosie but she dropped out last year.
I just hope they don’t turn it into a soppy rom-com because the book is great, full of bite and deserves better.
