New Line is going on “The Craziest OkCupid Date Ever,” buying the movie rights to Clare Benson’s tale of a three-week date and titling the project “No Baggage.”

“Jeff and I traveled to eight countries in 21 days without changing clothes,” Benson wrote in her article for Salon.com. “It sure beat meeting for coffee.”

Benson, a writer based in Houston, said the journey went well despite the lack of belongings.

“On the surface, we appeared to be sure candidates for ‘World’s Most Unlikely Pair,’” she wrote. “He’s a wildly energetic university professor who is always on the move. I’m a reclusive writer who spends hours identifying new constellations in the ceiling paint.”

The duo made no plans in advance, Benson noted.

“With no stuff, moving to the next destination was as simple as getting out of bed and pointing to a dot on the map,” she said. »
