Adam Platnick’s Freestyle Pictures has optioned Valerie Frankel’s comic novel “The Accidental Virgin” as a vehicle for Heather Graham to topline and produce.
Project was optioned out of Freestyle’s development fund, which is supplied by shingle backer Constantin Pictures. Nicole Eastman is penning the adaptation.
Published by Avon Books in March, Frankel’s novel is the story of a young woman who hasn’t had a lover in almost a year and becomes terrified that she’s at risk of being “revirginized.” She goes on a quest to get a man in her bed but discovers she’s not as easy as she thinks.
The book was brought into Freestyle by development exec Dana Jackson, who formerly headed development at Hunt/Tavel Prods.
Graham will produce with her partner, Miranda DePencier. Sherry Singer and Ruth Fainberg also produce.
Platnick inked a multiyear production, finance and distribution deal with Constantin last fall.
