    The comedian will co-write and star in the relationship comedy 'The Female Brain.'
    Whitney Cummings, co-creator of hit sitcom 2 Broke Girls, is set to make her directorial debut with The Female Brain, a relationship comedy the comedian co-wrote with Neal Brennan.

    Cummings will also star in the film, based on Louann Brizendine’s non-fiction book of the same name, which looks at the neurology behind romantic relationships.

    Black Bicycle Entertainment is financing, and Erika Olde will produce the film alongside Night and Day Pictures’ Michael Roiff. Casting is currently underway, with principal photography set to begin in July in Los Angeles.

    "The Female Brain is a book that profoundly changed my life, and I'm really proud of how Neal Brennan and I wrote the script in a way that addresses how both men and women are often challenged and undermined by their reptilian brains and primordial fears," said Cummings. "I'm really grateful Black Bicycle is letting me make a science comedy!"

    Cummings next appears alongside Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson in Denise Di Novi'sUnforgettable for Warner Bros.

    Black Bicycle Entertainment recently announced Hallie Meyers-Shyer’s Home Again with Rose Byrne attached to star, which they are financing and producing alongside Nancy Meyers. The company is financing and producing Claire and Jake Scott’s The Burning Woman – both with Scott Free Productions and written by Brad Ingelsby (Run All Night, Out of the Furnace).

    Cummings is represented by CAA and Mosaic. Olde is also represented by CAA, which represents the film's worldwide distribution rights.

    I don't think she'd mind doing porn either. The only thing holding her back is public perception.

    I hope she doesn't plan on holding the camera because she's greasy and cameras are expensive.

    Soon it will be time for Will, Jason, or one of the other 50 producers over there to print out her most recent Wiggypedia page for her 10th "this is your life."

    Independently financed ..it will struggle in the "festival" cycle . Somebody will buy it and put it out in a small number of artsy theatres in a couple of big cities . If it was financed by a huge studio , it would have more of a budget ...and they would not let her direct . If you want to have your cake and eat it too, you'll get a small budget and 30 day shooting schedule ..instead of a 60 day shooting schedule .
