DreamWorks Says I Saw You
Gets into the rom-com game

Hey, hands up everyone who wants to see another ensemble rom-com? Anyone? Well, tough, 'cause you're getting I Saw You from DreamWorks whether you like it or not. Yes, hot on the heels of Love Actually, He's Just Not That Into You and the forthcoming Valentine's Day, here's another group outing.

Drawn by a plethora of comic-book names and edited by Julie Wertz, the book is a mixture of the heartfelt, the bizarre and the bonkers - and four interlocking love stories from it will form the basis of a new film.

A script based on the book by Andrea McCloud sparked something of a bidding war, and George Tillman Jr. (Notorious, Men Of Honor) is set to produce and direct.
