Frankel, McKenna reteam for Weinstein project
“The Devil Wears Prada” director David Frankel and writer Aline Brosh McKenna will dip into the chick lit pool once again.
The two are reteaming to adapt the bestseller “I Don’t Know How She Does It” for the Weinstein Co.
Project, based on the debut novel by British journo Allison Pearson, will be produced by Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella through their Mirage Enterprises.
Story revolves around a businesswoman who balances her career with her role as a mom.
The Weinsteins and Mirage have a relationship that dates back to “The Talented Mr. Ripley.” They also co-produced “Cold Mountain,” “Iris” and “The Quiet American.”
Next up for Mirage and the Weinstein Co. is “Breaking and Entering.”
