The movie “centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate – only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.”

It is based on the novel by Graeme Simsion.

    Misleading title. He’s being eyed.

    It’s what I was going to say in the title he’s confirmed but in the written up article he’s in talks.

  • FerCat

    Linklater has zero experience in genetics related stories.

    Michael Bay on the other hand… and Adam Sandler can play the genetics professor. Make this a $200M spectacular and we’re done.


    Ex-actress who left show business years ago and a non-director non-boyfriend she isn’t even associated with. This makes for a non-story. Another great newsflash from this site.

    I won’t. And I understand, as you obviously don’t, that if you don’t want to watch some random film it’s absolutely fine. And I won’t troll you for it.
