Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) has been tapped by MGM to direct the action comedy film The How-To Guide for Saving the World from screenwriter BenDavid Grabinski.
“I loved the writing and the concept: What would happen if, one afternoon, the secret group that protects Earth from alien invaders was wiped out?” Sonnenfeld said. “Fortunately, they left behind an instruction manual for saving Earth. Unfortunately, a non-action-hero guy — not unlike me in terms of manliness — and a woman who hates him find the book and have to save the planet from an impending attack.”
