Warner Bros. is bringing good manners to the big screen.

According to a report in Variety, Warners is working on a project that will play off the work and ideals of Emily Post, who wrote the best-selling book on manners, 'Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home,' which is now in its 17th edition. Warner Bros. is bringing good manners to the big screen.

According to a report in Variety, Warners is working on a project that will play off the work and ideals of Emily Post, who wrote the best-selling book on manners, 'Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home,' which is now in its 17th edition. Post also wrote syndicated newspaper columns on good manners and founded the The Emily Post Institute, which continues her work today.

The untitled romantic comedy will center on a by-the-book Emily Post manners coach who takes a rough young man and turns him into a gentleman, in a kind of reverse 'My Fair Lady.'

Underground Films' Nick Osborne wrote a treatment for the project -- with input from the Post institute and family -- and Warners picked it up and closed a deal with the institute to develop the film. The project is now out to writers. Who, we trust, will handle the film with the proper good taste.
