Summit acquires 'Men Are From Mars, Women are From Venus'

Posted on

It’s been 18 years since psychologist John Gray wrote Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, yet Summit Entertainment — the studio behind the Twilight franchise — and producers Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun believe there is still fresh material to mine from this multimillion dollar book series that discusses communication between the sexes. The studio announced today that they have acquired all television and film rights to the entire franchise. Since the ink is just drying now, there are no concrete plans yet on how the books will be adapted. Says Erik Feig, Summit’s president of production, “It is a pop culture mainstay and comically, sadly, romantically, all too often still true these many years after first being published.” The series has sold over 50 million books in 45 territories worldwide and Gray’s video/DVD lecture series has earned over $100 million.
