About The Production

If you're not having fun being single, then you're not doing it right.

Single in New York City? Or London, L.A., Munich, Miami, or anywhere in between? These days, in cities big and small, there's a nightlife rife with girls' nights out, singles' bars, online dating and one-night stands arranged on apps"no romance required. Today's singles aren't necessarily looking for Ms. or Mr. Right, or drowning their sorrows in their lonely bachelor/ette pads. 'How to Be Single" is an all-out comedy that shows how they're all out there making the most of the single lifestyle, in the most outrageous ways imaginable.

The film's director, Christian Ditter, states, 'I wanted to make a really modern and fresh take on the comedy genre as it deals with partying, having fun, dating"a snapshot of what it really means to be single today. A lot of movies that deal with men and women and dating are about finding the right one, but this is not that; it's about embracing the most fun and free time of life while you're also finding your place in the world, finding friends, finding out what you want to do with your life."

Led by an ensemble cast that includes some of today's hottest comedic actresses, including Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie and Leslie Mann, and such rising comedy stars as Damon Wayans Jr., Anders Holm, Nicholas Braun, Jake Lacy, Jason Mantzoukas and Colin Jost, the film follows a host of singles at various stages of"and with varying opinions on"the single state.

Producer John Rickard notes, 'It's a universal experience, being young, right out of college and discovering a whole big world. Or a few years later, hitting another one of those crossroads: what do I care about, what do I want to spend my life doing, does another person even figure into the picture? We often think it's a partner we have to find, but it's really ourselves, and that can be scary."

Happily, what's scary in real life can make us laugh the hardest when it's played out on film. Screenwriter/producer Dana Fox, a comedy veteran, offers, 'Romantic comedies are always centered on the romance, but this is a comedy about the time in between the relationships, when you're out there to have a good time in this crazy age of staring at your cell phone, having entire conversations in 140 characters or less and -swiping right' to meet people. There are so many advantages to a film with so many funny stories to tell.

'In any movie," she continues, 'you want audiences to feel like they're along on the journey. We have Dakota Johnson's character, Alice, to provide the heart and soul of the story, and we have all these other great women and men to follow along and laugh with."

Or laugh at. Returning to her comedy roots, Johnson deftly handles Alice's fumbling attempts to meet men upon finding herself newly single, especially when paired with Rebel Wilson's extreme party girl, Robin, the perfect tour guide through the world of free drinks, hook-ups and text message protocol. Alison Brie's Lucy is a girl on an online dating mission, and Leslie Mann's Meg has been on the career track and sort of forgotten to have a personal life. Along with the guys they all meet along the way, they exemplify the wide range of what it's like out there.

Christian Ditter says, 'I loved the script, I thought it was hilariously funny but also true to life, and it continued to evolve once we got on set with Dana and all these amazing comedic talents and their incredible improv skills. So what we ended up with in the film are characters and stories I see a lot of my own experiences in, and friends' experiences, too. I think that anyone who's been single"and that's, well, everybody"will have a lot of fun and find a lot to laugh about when they relate it to their own life."

Welcome to the party!

Just out of college, Alice is worried she's missing out"on what, she's not quite sure, but taking a 'break" from longtime boyfriend Josh in order to make sure he's the one is the right thing to do…isn't it?

'How to Be Single" takes us along with Alice as she ventures into a new job, a new city"New York"a newly unattached life, and all that goes along with it. Dakota Johnson, who plays the fresh-faced Alice, says, 'I loved how believable the story was"we've all been that person who is stumbling through, trying to figure things out."

Fox, who worked with Dakota Johnson previously, was happy to see the actress go back to a comedic role after several more dramatic parts. 'Dakota Johnson is just naturally talented, especially when it comes to comedy, both physical and verbal," she states. 'As a writer, it's such a pleasure for me to work with her again, because nothing comes out feeling -written.'"

When we first meet her character, Dakota Johnson observes, 'She is sort of this doe-eyed, curious young woman starting college. She meets a boy right away and is quickly in a comfortable and nurturing relationship."

Fast forward four years. 'Like so many of us, Alice has always depended on someone, whether it's her parents, her sister or her boyfriend. Suddenly, she has this profound moment of realisation and forces herself into what she thinks is an awakening, but which is really just a break up," the actress acknowledges. 'But taking a break turns into a total explosion of life as she knows it, and now she has to figure out how to handle it."

After persuading her very serious boyfriend she needs to experiment with being on her own, Alice heads to Manhattan to start a new job as a paralegal. 'Right away, she falls into the hands of Robin, who's kind of insane," Dakota Johnson laughs. 'Alice has been sheltered and established a lot of boundaries for herself; Robin has zero boundaries and doesn't care what anyone else thinks of her, so long as she's having fun."

The role of Alice required a convincing amount of girl-next-door naiveté in order for moviegoers to slip into her shoes, or at least remember a time when they did. Christian Ditter found Dakota Johnson to be 'absolutely gorgeous but at the same time completely relatable. She's talented and gives a very authentic performance, which makes it easy for the audience to see themselves in her place. She grounds the story for all the other characters, who are much more outrageous."

None more so than the aggressively spirited Robin, who makes it her mission to not only show the newcomer the ropes at work, but after business hours as well. 'Robin really loves being single and wants everyone else to love it as much as she does," Dakota Johnson offers. 'Alice, on her own for the first time, figures she might as well learn from the master."

Rebel Wilson took a no-holds-barred approach to her character. 'Robin is the eternally single girl who knows who she is and what she wants, is super independent and has the best life you could have in the best city in the world. She goes out partying, drinks a lot, has one-night stands, and doesn't carry any of the baggage that a relationship can bring."

In fact, when we first see Robin, she's at the top of her game. 'She's at one of New York's hottest clubs, dancing up a storm," Rebel Wilson notes. The production brought in Wilson's close friend Aakomon Jones, who choreographed her in 'Pitch Perfect," to give Robin all the right moves for her entrance. 'AJ choreographed a little dance for me and we did it about 50 times that day, just for that one opening shot. It was so much fun," she adds.

Upon meeting Alice, Robin is determined to show her the way of the single life"her way. 'Robin literally teaches her how to be single"how to get drinks for free in a bar, where to hook up with someone at work, when to text back the guy you slept with the night before… All the tricks in her book," Rebel Wilson notes.

On set, Rebel Wilson definitely brings the fun. 'I'm a huge fan of Rebel Wilson's," Christian Ditter declares. 'I think everything she does is hysterically funny, and she brought so much to the table, so many ideas and great improv. We always did a few scripted takes, of course, but then I said to her, -Okay, surprise me,' and a lot of what she did is in the film, because she's so inventive and such a comedy genius. I was afraid we'd have to digitally stabilise all of her takes because the camera operator was laughing so hard!"

'Rebel Wilson is magnificent; she's unlike anyone I've ever met," Dakota Johnson raves. 'She's extremely heartfelt, but can then turn around and easily riff on the most ridiculous subjects. It was really amazing working with her."

The feeling was mutual for Rebel Wilson. 'I loved working with Dakota Johnson. We have such different energies and are such different physical types; we're almost like a classic comedy duo."

Because Christian Ditter loved the way the two women played off each other, Rebel Wilson recalls, 'We added a lot of outrageous physical comedy"nothing was too crazy for him. Christian Ditter really enjoys that stuff and trusted us to go with it, so we did. He was incredibly supportive of our ideas and we got up to some great mischief, Dakota Johnson and I."

John Rickard states, 'Rebel Wilson is really at the forefront of pop culture and redefining what it means to be a comedy star. Whenever she's on set, you really can't take your eyes off her"you don't want to miss what she might do or say next, and that translates to the screen. And Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson together? Lightning in a bottle."

If Robin is a new and somewhat unstabilizing force in Alice's life, her sister, Meg, is her rock. The part is played by Leslie Mann, whom Christian Ditter refers to as 'comedy royalty, great fun and a total pleasure to watch."

'I play an obstetrician, so she's around babies all day. But she doesn't have any, or any interest in having her own, even though she knows the clock is ticking," Leslie Mann observes.

A little older and a lot wiser, or so it seems, Meg is the consummate successful career woman. But, unlike her sister, who's seeking to expand her personal life, Meg has neglected hers entirely.

Still, Meg's got a maternal side. Dakota Johnson notes, 'Meg allows her little sister to be whoever she is, at any time. So, when Alice and Meg are together, you see a completely different side of Alice"a little immature and childish"but she's forgiven because it brings out the softness and gentleness in Meg. And they are playful and funny together because they're sisters, one of the most important relationships you can have."

Despite being a doctor who delivers babies, or her ease with mothering her sister, Meg professes to be profoundly uncomfortable with children. But a pivotal scene early in the film shows that Meg just may protest too much. The scene required Mann to spend three hours on a confining set with a six-month-old. 'It was just Leslie Mann and the baby with me, two cameras and a sound guy in a super small room," Christian Ditter describes, 'and once we were in there, there was no getting out. The baby wouldn't do anything we wanted her to, and I thought, -This is my first and last day with Leslie!' But she is a total professional, and everything she did the baby just mirrored. She created such a good mood in the scene and really directed the baby, and it turned into one of the most amazing scenes in the film. Leslie Mann was just gold."

'While Leslie Mann is playing the comedy, she's always also playing a thread of emotion that runs just underneath," Fox elaborates. 'I think that's why it's such fun to watch her characters melt down; it just comes off so natural and you think, -I've had that same freak out before, I've done that.' Nobody is as good as she is at letting the crazy quietly play out underneath the dialogue."

In addition to avoiding children outside the workplace, Meg also seems to have completely discounted the idea of having a man in her life, content instead to be married to her job. 'And then she meets a boy…a much younger boy," Leslie Mann reveals. Apprehensive but sufficiently charmed, Meg decides to go for it, if only for a one-nighter.

Unlike Meg, Lucy is a proactive young woman determined to date as much as necessary and in the most efficient and practical manner possible"online"in order to find not just a man, but the man for her. She's done the math and has embraced technology, convinced it will deliver Mr. Right right to her door. But with her apartment's Wi-Fi less than supportive of her efforts, she commandeers a stool and a signal at the bar downstairs in order to monitor the multiple dating sites that will link her to love.

Alison Brie plays the pragmatic dating machine. 'Lucy's whole social life is predicated on online dating, so a terrible internet connection is a real disaster for her," she attests. 'Getting married as soon as possible is a big priority. She's a smart girl with a brain that's moving 100 miles a minute and she's created an algorithm to weed through the guys on several websites. But she's feeling the pressure of the timeline she's imposed on herself; she already feels behind."

While Alison Brie thinks that her character is not desperate at all, nor acting purely out of loneliness, she admits that Lucy 'is blinded by this very specific kind of guy she's looking for, which limits her options even further. She doesn't realize that that's the problem, that she's too organised and too rigid in her thinking and therefore not quite able to see what's right in front of her."

'Alison Brie plays Lucy with incredible energy and a kind of -tightness' that is so funny," Fox says. 'She is such a firecracker, it only takes a little spark and she just goes! She's so fast and manages to deliver incredibly long speeches and make them sound very natural coming out of her mouth. You get a sense that Lucy really exists."

In a sense, she does, Fox confesses. 'Lucy is a little bit based on me in that she's obsessed with statistics, and I've always been somebody who loves facts and doing research and the satisfaction you can get from that."

For these four women seeking out the various types of satisfaction to be found in any social scene, one thing is very clear"at least, according to Robin:

Boys buy the drinks!

To pick up the tab"and more"the filmmakers from 'How to Be Single" cast a host of hot comedians from film and TV fame to play the men ready to show the women a good time. Serial single Tom is a bartender with a tried-and-true formula for getting a girl out the door before dawn. 'He's got love -em and leave -em down to a system," says Anders Holm, who plays the philandering flirt with a premeditated lack of amenities in his bachelor pad. 'He's used to getting his way and getting any girl he wants."

'I think Anders Holm is one of the greatest rising stars in comedy acting," Christian Ditter says. 'The role is a ladies' man, but I wanted to cast someone really interesting and fun who could mine the humor in Tom, and he brought all that."

Holm says that he and Christian Ditter discussed at length how far to take Tom's bad boy behaviour. 'We talked about whether he's a nice bad guy or a bad nice guy, and decided that he's really the worst kind of good guy. He's a genuinely nice dude caught in a pattern of easy chicks, no personal commitments, and he doesn't know how to be serious even if he finds someone he could be serious with. And that's the way girls like Lucy see him. He's created a lifestyle that's now his identity, and he's lost in it. Not that it really bothers him."

That is, until Lucy sidles up to the bar. 'She is very particular about who she wants as her mate, and Tom does not fall under that classification," the actor continues. 'This stupefies him and makes him kind of want her." But it doesn't stop him from fooling around with other women, like Alice. 'She's just out of a good, long relationship and looking for something bad, and that's Tom."

When Alice dips her toes in the pool of Manhattan's single men, she dives right into the deep end with Tom, the polar opposite of her longtime beau, Josh. 'They were two awkward college freshmen who fell for each other," Nicholas Braun says of his character and Alice. 'Josh was a safe option and a good guy who treated her well. I don't think there was any danger of being surprised with Josh, and I think that's part of why she leaves him.

'Alice is a girl a lot of girls can identify with," he adds. 'She's at that stage of life where you don't want to feel settled down, you need to do some soul searching. And while Josh is a good example of someone who thinks that this relationship is the only one for him, even Josh isn't going to wait for his girlfriend to go off and have sex with a bunch of guys just so she can see if he's still the one for her. He's gonna look around, too."

While Alice is on the lookout for someone new, she meets a single dad, David, who is attracted to her but hesitant to test the relationship waters again. Damon Wayans Jr. portrays the wary widower venturing back into the dating world.

'He's trying to maneuver his way through that part of life again, but he may not be ready for it," Damon Wayans offers. 'He sees Alice once and finds her intriguing, but it's not until they wind up seeing each other again, randomly, that the sparks fly."

Damon Wayans enjoyed working with Dakota Johnson. 'Dakota Johnson is very fun and very free and thinks on her toes. She likes to improv a lot, which was great for me," says the comedy veteran.

'Damon Wayans is such a funny guy and I adore his work," Christian Ditter conveys. 'In this film, he has one of the more serious roles, and he played the part so well, never letting it get too heavy or dramatic. He brought just the right balance to it."

Alice isn't the only one who meets what could be the right guy at what may be the wrong time. Her practical, all-work-and-no-play sister, Meg, is surprised to be an object of interest for the much younger Ken, played by Jake Lacy. Sweet and sincere, Ken is crushing on Meg in a big way. 'She's in it for the quick and dirty," Jake Lacy says, 'and Ken digs that, but he wants to see things through, to keep it going afterward. She's also pretty sure that he's too young for her, and I like that he's trying to break down the barriers she keeps putting up."

The filmmakers knew they'd need someone with strong comedic chops to play opposite Leslie Mann. 'Jake Lacy blew us all away," Christian Ditter states. 'In his first meeting with Leslie, after two minutes it became clear that they had great chemistry together. Whatever she came up with, he threw back and her; whatever he came up with, she threw back at him."

'Leslie was wonderful to work with," Jack Lacy relates. 'She's smart, funny, talented, quick and beautiful. She had different ideas every time we started a scene and had really thought through every moment, which made it easy to play off of her and give her something new in every take, too."

Another guy to take one of the gals by surprise is George, played by Jason Mantzoukas, and his casting turned out to be something of a surprise to both the actor and the filmmakers as well. Christian Ditter explains, 'We were having a writers' roundtable, talking about the script and pitching jokes, adding something here and something there. Jason was invited to join because he's also a writer, and every joke he pitched was so funny. He also didn't just say the jokes, he acted them out. After the roundtable session, we all looked at each other and said, -Hey, this guy just played the part, let's hire him.'" The filmmakers contacted Jason Mantzoukas and asked him to join the cast and do everything he'd just done, only this time on camera. The actor quickly agreed.

Once on set, Jason Mantzoukas recalls, 'There was a great script, with lots of jokes, so we did takes that were straight from that. Then we'd come up with other beats or alternative jokes, and do takes that were totally improvised. We also did takes with alternative jokes that Dana Fox had written for the scenes, so we could try going off in different directions. It was such a terrific creative experience for all of us."

'We were very lucky that all the actors we had were very good on their feet and could riff off each other," says Christian Ditter, 'which allowed for a lot of experimentation. I think that by having our very talented ensemble contribute creatively, we got the fresh, contemporary feel we were going for."

Breaking up sucks, but you know what's even worse?
Wasting a night in New York City.

'How to be Single" was filmed entirely in and around New York City. In the thriving metropolis of eight million people and countless possibilities, the shooting schedule was ambitious in its scope, covering approximately 45 locations in 47 days. 'We were all over town," says producer John Rickard. 'In the Meatpacking District, on a Midtown rooftop, Wall Street, Fifth Avenue… And we captured it in a real way. Christian knew how special it was to shoot in New York, and he really got it all."

'I wanted to feel the city, to take the movie out on the streets, to be on the bridges, in the parks and on the rooftops of actual New York, not to film everything on a stage. And that's what we did," Christian Ditter recounts.

'I think everybody who comes to New York wants to achieve something, or is looking for something, or is there for the adventure that the city has to offer," he goes on to say. 'I have the feeling whenever somebody makes that step and leaves everything else behind because they want to throw themselves into life and give it their all, New York is the place to go. That's why Alice is going there, and we're following her along on that exciting journey."

While the city photographs beautifully, it's nevertheless a challenging city for film production. Christian Ditter notes, 'It was the first time for me to shoot in New York, and I think I approached it a bit naïvely. Everywhere I looked, it looked like a movie, wherever I pointed my camera, it looked like a still from a film, so I thought, -This will be easy.' Of course, it was not. There are tons of logistics involved and it's a massive undertaking. Fortunately, we had one of the best crews in the entire world and they pulled it all off effortlessly."

Fox adds, 'The city absolutely rolled out the red carpet for us, and even the weather was beautiful"everything looked great. Our biggest challenge turned out to be that we were making a movie about single people going out at night, so we were up all night shooting most of the time!"

Christian Ditter called upon his longtime collaborator Christian Rein to handle the cinematography. 'We've worked together since film school, he's one of the top DPs in Germany," Christian Ditter says. 'He's done a lot of award-winning films, commercials, music videos. With the surge of things like Instagram and Periscope, photography has changed and filmmakers have to work in new and inventive ways. Christian Ditter has always been ahead of the curve in blending the latest elements with the quality you expect in a Hollywood film. I think he combined the best of all these worlds. And since we've done so many projects together, we have a shorthand. Like baseball players, we can just sign to each other and we know what it means."

In designing the physical look of the film, production designer Steve Saklad drew upon his own experiences as a young single in New York City. 'The idea of finding this incredible place and making your own little spot in it is a story that works for everybody. We had a lot of major characters, each of whom gets prime screen time in the movie, so each of them needed a zone. We started by asking ourselves, -Do they live in Manhattan, or Brooklyn?'"

The first place Alice crashes when she gets to the city is at her sister Meg's, a classic Upper West Side apartment created on a stage at the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens. 'We gave her a lovely one bedroom with all the great bones of the beautiful pre-wars like you might see in an old Woody Allen movie," Steve Saklad relates.

The exterior of Meg's building was shot at the corner of Broadway and 77th Street in the midst of the busy Upper West Side neighborhood. There, Christian Ditter and Rein shot a scene where Alice and Robin face the challenge of a brand new day in the Big Apple" after a very long night out. 'They captured this beautiful 360 degree shot, exactly the right beat for that moment in the story," Steve Saklad says.

The independent book store Book Culture, located on nearby Columbus Avenue, provided the location for a scene where Lucy, distraught over a break up, leads a memorable story time for a group of young children.

After crashing on Meg's couch for a while, Alice relocates, like many of her generation, across the East River to Brooklyn. Steve Saklad and his team found a tiny space in a building just under the Williamsburg Bridge that was perfect for Alice's first apartment. 'We turned it into a kind of wonderland of old moldings, a history of old tenants, wallpapers and paints, to give you this feeling of a cocoon inside a very small footprint where Alice is going to start her new life."

A brownstone in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood was the location for Alice's former boyfriend Josh's warm, homey apartment. In another part of Brooklyn, on Grand Street near the Navy Yard, the design team created a bachelor pad for Tom the bartender in an industrial loft. Back in Manhattan, a space on Gansevoort Street in the West Village's Meatpacking District, and the cobblestone streets outside it, served as the location for Tom's bar and, just upstairs, Lucy's apartment. The production also shot scenes in The Park restaurant and in the Marquee Club, both on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea, before moving further downtown, to 44 Wall Street, for scenes at the law firm where Alice and Robin work.

Uptown, Metropolitan Hospital on First Avenue at East 97th Street served as Meg's workplace, while the East Side also provided locations for a shopping expedition at Giggle on Lexington Avenue, and for Alice and Robin's adventures in beauty: Bloomingdale's on Third Avenue, Drybar on East 76th Street, and MAC cosmetics on Fifth Avenue and 22nd Street.

And what Manhattan movie would be complete without a scene in the historic Grand Central Terminal, which provided the location for a key scene with Lucy. The equally iconic Empire State Building served as the backdrop for a rooftop birthday party that Alice throws for herself. 'The rooftop proved to be one of the trickiest pieces," says Saklad. 'We needed a place we could own for a week, and a place that had a -wow factor' view that could be nowhere but in New York City."

The filmmakers found the perfect spot on 36th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, that offered just such a view, and which Steve Saklad and his team then transformed. 'We turned it into the rooftop of our dreams," he says. To overlook the newly festive space, the filmmakers added a giant neon sign that read 'Empire City," in order to illuminate the party scene with changing colors.

Each character in the film has his or her own palette as well. Steve Saklad notes, 'We found that Leslie, as Meg, really thrives on the cool sage, grey blues that are the hospital colors. Dakota Johnson's Alice glows against red and turquoise, so we made those her colors, which also contrast nicely with her sister to highlight the different places they are in their lives."

The reds of Alice's palette extended to her wardrobe, too. Costume designer Leah Katznelson explains how Alice's clothes evolve as the story progresses. 'Her look has a little bit of a tomboy influence initially, and I think as she becomes more grounded as a woman, she becomes a little more grounded in her femininity and we start to see her wear slightly more flirty fabrics and prints. Alice is someone who would go to a flea market or a vintage store and be able to select things that someone else may not be able to put together in the same way."

Leah Katznelson also worked closely with actress Rebel Wilson to create a standout wardrobe for the supremely self-confident Robin. 'We had a great time with color and with making her a version of a different kind of New York woman, one who's out there in the scene and knows everything"the best clubs, the best underground bars, the best places to be. Her daytime life is centered around what happens after work. Even at work, she's dressed to go out; the office is just a place for her to keep her bag during the day."

The designer did have to be careful not to go too far, though. 'Robin's a girl that dresses to be noticed, but we didn't want her clothes to speak before she did," Leah Katznelson explains. 'Although we did do a couple of light up dresses for her that were a lot of fun…"

Though she also spends a lot of time in a bar, Lucy is a completely different kind of girl. 'Alison Brie's character was on a different end of the spectrum," Leah Katznelson states. 'She's a much more sensible, slightly preppy character, so there were a lot of collared shirts and blazers and tailored things."

For Alice's sister Meg, an obstetrician, and for David, a real estate developer, their clothes largely reflect their work. 'We see Meg in her scrubs and lab coat a lot," says Leah Katznelson.

'Damon was great to dress because not only does he look lovely in his clothes, but his clothes are very high end. He's somebody who makes a significant amount of money, and his look is very much tied into his business."

The looks for the two other men in Alice's life"her college boyfriend Josh and her new 'friend with benefits" Tom"also lend contrast to the men. 'We wanted to make Anders Holm's Tom very different from David," says Leah Katznelson. 'We kept him downtown and comfortable. And Josh falls more in line with the person you think Alice is always supposed to be with. He's very collegiate and kind of has his life pulled together, so his clothes reflect that."

From the locations to the sets to the clothes, color palettes and composer Fil Eisler's music, Ditter hopes the film captures the fresh and fun vibe that surrounds the single life in New York and cities like it around the globe. 'I think it will really resonate with adults of all ages, from their 20s through their 40s and beyond. There are always romantic movies released this time of year every year, but check out the audiences"half of them are on a date and half of them are single, out with friends just having a great time! This is a comedy for everyone who's ever been young and in and out of relationships, whether they're going through it now or want to laugh about that time of their life. I really think -How to be Single' has it all!"
