THE FEMALE BRAIN: Ensemble Cast Announced For Whitney Cummings Adaptation

Whitney Cummings

Black Bicycle Entertainment announces the cast for Whitney Cummings‘ adaptation of The Female Brain. The comedian and 2 Broke Girls co-creator will star as well as direct the big-screen version of the Louann Brizendine nonfiction book.

The film, which is based on a script written by both Cummings and Neal Brennan, will feature a litany of noteworthy actors, including Sofia Vergara, James Marsden, Lucy Punch, Toby Kebbell, and Cecily Strong:

First published in 2006, “The Female Brain” is officially described as follows:

Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can’t remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages.

Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and who they love. While doing research as a medical student at Yale and then as a resident and faculty member at Harvard, Louann Brizendine discovered that almost all of the clinical data in existence on neurology, psychology, and neurobiology focused exclusively on males. In response to the overwhelming need for information on the female mind, Brizendine established the first clinic in the country to study and treat women’s brain function.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
