Michael Sucsy Plans 40 Days of Dating

September 17, 2013


The Vow helmer Michael Sucsy is set to direct 40 Days of Dating for Warner Bros., Deadline reports. The film is based on a blog experiment on the part of New York City-based designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman. On the project's official site, the pair describe their approach as follows:

What do you do when youíre tired of the prospect of dating? Two good friends with opposite relationship problems found themselves single at the same time. As an experiment, they dated for 40 days.

Love is a central theme in humanity across time and cultures. Itís one of the main topics in music, film, novels, poetry, and art. But what exactly is it, and why do we all approach it so differently? How does it affect us so deeply that sane people have gone mad over it?

The dating life in New York City can grow tiresome and wearing. Tim is afraid of commitment, often dating many girls at once, and heís losing sight of what a healthy relationship means. Jessica is a hopeless romantic, jumping into relationships too quickly, always looking to find ďthe one.Ē

Itís been said that it takes 40 days to change a bad habit. In an attempt to explore and hopefully overcome their fears and inadequacies, Tim and Jessica will go through the motions of a relationship for the next 40 days: the commitment, time, companionship, joys and frustrations. Can they help each other, or will they fall into their same habits? Will they damage their friendship? What if they fall in love?


Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist and Seeking a Friend at the End of the World's Lorene Scafaria is set to provide the screenplay with Bard Dorros, Joy Gorman, Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta producing.
