Drew Barrymore made a somewhat low-key directorial debut last year with the cracking film, Whip It, and is now prepping her sophomore effort, How To Be Single.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Single is based on the same-titled novel written by Liz Tuccilld. It's apparently along similar lines to successful multi-story flicks such as He’s Just Not That Into You and Valentine’s Day, and will centre on a group of New Yorkers through ten years of relationships.

Barrymore just starred in Going the Distance, and has another film called Whales due out soon.
