Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) is the man Twentieth Century Fox has put in charge of turning 9-year-old Alec Greven’s book How to Talk to Girls into a feature film. Levy, and his company, 21 Laps, will produce with an eye to direct the youngster’s simple, astute advice manual, which he originally sold at his school’s book fair for $3. (Sample line: “You have to be aware that girls win most of the arguments.”) Greven became a popular guest on the talk-show circuit once his book deal with HarperCollins was announced. Levy’s next film, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, opens in May.
