Helen Estabrook to Produce Film Adaptation of Eliza Kennedy’s Cold-Feet Comedy ‘I Take You’

Helen Estabrook to Produce Film Adaptation of Eliza Kennedy's Cold-Feet Comedy 'I Take You'

Helen Estabrook (“Whiplash”) will team up with Tobey Maguire to adapt Eliza Kennedy’s debut novel, “I Take You,” for the big screen.

Published on May 5, the book centers on an successful lawyer who isn’t ready to exchange her partying days for a wedding ring and begins to dread her Big Day.  

Kennedy will pen the screenplay. Estabrook’s previous producing credits include “Labor Day” and “Men, Women, & Children.”

Here’s the book synopsis for “I Take You”:

Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man.

Lily’s fiancé Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and has no business getting married. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights — and mornings, and afternoons — of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.
Unapologetically sexy with the ribald humor of “Bridesmaids,” this joyously provocative debut introduces a self-assured protagonist you won’t soon forget.
