Actress Drew Barrymore will be making her second directing effort with the romantic comedy "How to Be Single," based on a 2008 novel with the same title by Liz Tuccillo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will explore the love lies of a group of New Yorkers over the course of 10 years and will follow a similar multi-story arc as films like "Valentine's Day," the upcoming film "New Year's Eve" and "He's Just Not That Into You," which starred Barrymore.

The actress made her first foray into directing with the 2009 film "Whip It" starring Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Marcia Gay Harden.
