'What To Expect When You're Expecting': Cameron Diaz Getting Offer For Pregnancy Manual Movie

From theme park ride to 80's action figure and board game, Hollywood has shown it can squeeze a movie out of anything, no matter how little juice may end up on the final reel. Now, the tinsel town is turning its eye on pregnancy manuals with the big screen adaptation of "What To Expect When You're Expecting."

"Expecting," however, won't be about preparing for your new bundle of joy; there will be no mental coaching or healthy pre-natal recipes. Instead, it'll be a romantic comedy -- and Cameron Diaz is expected to sign on for a leading role.

Diaz, who returns to her long-lost humor roots with the sex comedy "Bad Teacher," this summer, would take an unnamed part in the film, which Deadline says will be a sort of "Love Actually," that tells the tales of five couples awaiting a child. She recently remarked that she thought marriage was a dying institution.

The film, to be produced by Lionsgate, will be directed by Kirk Jones, who may be best known for his Irish indie comedy "Waking Ned Devine."
