Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park International is in tune with “The Female Brain,” a quirky relationship comedy that marks the directorial debut of comedian Whitney Cummings. The company has boarded the movie, which is in early post-production, and will represent it in all international territories.
Hyde Park will screen first footage to distributors in Berlin at the European Film Market, while CAA is handling North American domestic rights.
Written by Cummings and Neal Brennan, the film is based on the book by neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine. It charts the inner workings and complex power of brain chemistry among couples at different stages of their relationship. Cummings also stars in the ensemble comedy alongside Sofia Vergara, James Marsden, Lucy Punch, Toby Kebbell, Cecily Strong, Beanie Feldstein, Blake Griffin, and Deon Cole.

Katherine Heigl may have the face of an innocent angel, one that lures you into a false sense of security, so once you see her in her new role as a bit of a psycho in the trailer and poster for Unforgettable you may not look at her in the same way ever again.
This dramatic thriller is veteran producer Denise Di Novi’s (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Focus) first time in the director’s chair but it sees her reunite with Heigl who both worked on Life as We Know It back in 2010. Heigl, who was last seen back in 2015 in Jenny’s Wedding and TV series State of Affairs seems to want to shake off being typecast in the romantic comedies and sink her teeth into something a little less saccharine and full blown bitter and twisted.

Whitney Cummings is no stranger to going topless — but this time she took it to a whole new level.
The 2 Broke Girls star attended the New York Knicks game against the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, and it’s safe to say that she successfully diverted the crowd’s attention from the game — at least for a few moments.
Cummings, 34, was sitting courtside when she decided to pull up her sweater and flash her nude-colored bra to the entire crowd — with a Jumbotron camera fixed right on her.

The outspoken comic talks about directing a ‘science comedy’ on the female brain, overcoming her battle with co-dependency and the cult of celebrity grief
At only 34, Whitney Cummings has packed an enormous amount of success – and a few notable failures – into her career.

At the same time, she was creating and executive-producing CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, a bona fide hit now in its sixth season.
