Fantastic Four director Tim Story has been set to direct the ensemble comedy Think Like a Man. The film is based on the bestselling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey. Kevin Hart (Little Fockers) will star as a “self-professed relationship expert” who proceeds to lecture his friends and family even though his own marriage is crumbling.

Deadline reports that production on the film is set to start this July. Story hasn’t directed a feature since 2009’s Hurricane Season, and previously helmed Barbershop and Taxi before moving on to the Fantastic Four franchise. Keith Merryman & David A. Newman (Friends With Benefits) wrote the script for Think Like a Man. Hit the jump to read a synopsis of Harvey’s book, then silently weep.

As a popular comedian, radio host and red-blooded male, Harvey doesn’t have the bona fides typical to most women’s relationship self-help, but he still manages a thorough, witty guide to the modern man. Harvey undertakes the tast because “Women are clueless about men,” because “Men get away with a whole lot of stuff” and because he has “some valuable information to change all of that.” Harvey makes a game effort, taking a bold but familiar men-are-dogs approach: if you’re “cutting back” on sex, “he will have another woman lined up and waiting to give him what he needs and wants–the cookie.” Several chapters later, however, he introduces the “ninety-day rule,” asserting that, actually, he won’t always have another woman lined up–and the only way to makes sure is a three-month vetting period. Harvey also tackles mama’s boys, “independent–and lonely–women,” and the matter of children in the dating world (“If he’s meeting the kids after you decide he’s the one, it’s too late”). Feminists and the easily offended probably won’t take to Harvey’s blanket statements and blunt advice, but Harvey’s fans and those in need of tough (but ticklish) love advice should check it out (especially the hysterical last-chapter Q&A).
