How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, one of the quintessential rom-coms of the noughties, is being spun into a TV series for the modern age.

The Mindy Project’s Guy Branum will pen the fresh take on the flick which starred Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey.

The reimagined TV series will follow a young digital columnist and a womanising advertising executive who both must prove that they’re able to be faithful, only to soon learn that keeping a relationship going is one difficult feat.

Branum tweeted about the exciting news on Thursday.

“We were all certain you could not make a good romantic comedy anymore because print media is dead and RomCom ladies have to work at magazines, but against the tides of history, Quibi & Paramount have agreed to let me re-write How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days,” he wrote.

He later replied to his original tweet with a gif of McConaughey in the movie, adding, “I will be observing and consulting numerous photos of shirtless Matthew McConaughey to properly research this task.”

The series is in development at the upcoming mobile-based streaming platform, Quibi.
