Studio eyes U.S. remake for hit comedy

Warner Bros. Pictures has optioned the U.S. remake rights for Argentinean comedy “A Boyfriend for My Wife.”

“Boyfriend,” starring Adrian Suar and Valeria Bertuccelli, is about a husband who tries to get his wife to fall in love with another man so he can leave her. Pablo Solarz penned the script.
