New Line has dated “Mean Moms” for May 8, 2015, a week after Disney opens “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Jennifer Aniston is in talks to star in “Mean Moms” with veteran TV director Beth McCarthy-Miller helming. Project was set up in 2010 with Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Jill Messick producing for New Line.
“Mean Moms” and Paramount’s 2004 comedy “Mean Girls” are both adapted from advice books for parents penned by Rosalind Wiseman.
The writing team of Sean Anders and John Morris are rewriting “Mean Moms,” which will focus on a happily married mother of two who moves from small-town America to the high-class suburbs and faces the cutthroat world of competitive parenting.
New Line has also set romantic comedy “How to Be Single” for Feb. 12, 2016. Lily Collins is in talks to star and Christian Ditter is attached to direct.
“How to Be Single” is the third title to land on the date following Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt” and Universal’s untitled animated Pets project.
