Burlesque director Steve Antin has signed on to helm Gold Circle’s comedy The Girlfriend, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll direct from a script by Eric Schade.
The female-driven comedy follows a woman who, after learning that her husband is cheating on her, realizes that she can move in with the other woman, posing as an unknowing roommate, to get her revenge.
Antin launched his career as an actor, playing Troy in The Goonies. Burlesque was his first feature project as a director and starred Cher, Christina Aguilera, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Julianne Hough, Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci. Released in 2010, it grossed close to $90 million worldwide.
The Girlfriend will be produced by Paul Brooks and Lisa Tornell with Scott Niemeyer executive producing.
