Michael Ealy and Taraji P. Henson have been cast in the film adaptation of Steve Harvey’s best-selling book Act Like a Woman, Think Like a Man.

 

The film, titled Think Like a Man, will center on the relationship between a “dreamer with culinary talents” (Ealy) and an advertising executive (Henson). The actors join Kevin Hart who, as we previously reported, will play a self-professed relationship expert with marital problems of his own. The project is based on Harvey's humorous self-help manual for relationships.

 

Ealy’s most recent films include Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls and Takers. Henson starred in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, for which she received an Oscar nomination. This summer she will appear in Universal's Larry Crowne.

 

Harvey will executive produce Think Like a Man along with Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy.

 

Production on the film will start this summer.
