When Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey started shooting this fun romantic comedy, they couldn't imagine the success the movie would have. And much less than 16 years later he would have a reboot in serial format.
The genre of romantic comedies seems to be living a second youth now that streaming platforms are booming. We already told you about the series based on Four Weddings and a Funeral of Hulu, and now it's the turn of How to lose a boy in 10 days, which will be a series thanks to Quibi, which will be launched in April 2020.
A reboot in serial format How to lose a boy in 10 days
The platform has confirmed that is developing an updated twist on romantic comedy, and will tell the story of a columnist and an advertising executive, although with more sexual content.
Both will need to show that they can maintain a relationship, which is the big difference with the initial plot of the film, in which he had to maintain the relationship and she, end the couple without leaving him. "However, they soon discover that maintaining a relationship is more difficult than Andie Anderson made it look like," said Guy Branum, the person in charge of rewriting history.
Quibi, the platform of streaming by Jeffrey Katzenberg, will offer premium series with short mobile episodes, of ten minutes. A risky bet that wants to make sure with projects of this caliber, such as this tribute to one of the romantic comedies that we like the most.
