There are many, many lines you never want to hear when someone ends a relationship — “it’s not you, it’s me” is probably in the top 3. But, as we’ve seen in the past with movies revolving around doomed relationships, they tend to make a lot of money. Variety has just reported that Vivica A. Fox, Joelle Carter, and Ross McCall have been hired to lead the indie relationship comedy, titled — well, you know — It’s Not You, It’s Me.
Screenwriter Nathan Ives is making his directorial debut, helming a comedy that tells the story of “a thirty-something commitment-phobe who breaks up with the love of his life thanks to conflicting advice from his outrageous, inner voices — and says the only thing he can think of to soften the blow: ‘It’s not you, it’s me.'” Carter (Justified) will be playing the role of the ex-girlfriend, whose own inner voices push her into moving onto the next love of her life. Although this isn’t the most original idea for a movie, it could end up being fun and a good switch from the melodramatic fare we’ve seen lately.
Beth Littleford, Erick Avari, and Maggie Wheeler are also starring, with newcomers Daniel Berson, Jake Eliott, Alina Foley, Darin Heames, Ary Katz, Abby Miller, Amber Seyer, Alex Petrovitch, Gabriel Voss, and Jessica York. The project is being developed and produced by Marie Rose, with shooting taking place in Los Angeles in the coming weeks.
