As previously reported, film producer Will Packer is in the thick of bringing Steve Harvey's best-selling relationship book 'Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man' to the big screen.
With Packer heading up executive producing duties, alongside Harvey, Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy, it was announced today that Taraji Henson, Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy have been tapped to star, according to Variety.
Directed by Tim Story, 'Think Like a Man' follows the relationship between an aspiring chef, played by Ealy, and a high-powered advertising executive, played by Henson. While Hart is set to portray a soon-to-be-divorced, self-professed relationship expert who doles out advice to the couple.
Harvey's book, which was published in 2009 and offers up his experiences about the dos and don'ts of meeting and mating, has sold over 2 million copies worldwide making the 'Original King of Comedy' as a New York Times Best Seller.
"It's pretty amazing," Harvey told us about the book's meteoric success back in February 2009. "It really has to be some amount of favor from God, because I have no experience at writing a book," he continued. "It ain't like I've been there, done that. It's got to be favor from God. It's gotta be something that he has planned for me bigger than I could see, because I just wanted to write a book so the women on my show could quit asking me to write a book."
Production for 'Think Like a Man' is tentatively scheduled to begin this summer.
