Drew Barrymore to direct 'How to be Single' Drew Barrymore is climbing back into the director's seat with a new rom-com called "How to be Single" that her company Flower Films is producing.

"How to be Single," the big-screen adaptation of Liz Tuccillo's novel of the same name, looks at the relationship ups-and-downs of a collection of New Yorkers over 10 years using multiple story lines like "Valentine's Day" and "He's Just Not That Into You," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The face of Cover Girl made her directorial debut with in 2009 with "Whip It" starring Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig. She's no stranger to the date-movie genre either (think "Never Been Kissed," "50 First Dates," "The Wedding Singer," "Lucky You").

If her relationship with "Going the Distance" costar Justin Long is any indication, she knows a thing or two about the single life as well.

If only she could cast Adam Sandler in the film. Ah, the Ministry can dream...
