We scoffed when the pregnancy bible, What to Expect When You are Expecting, by Heidi Murkoff (Workman), was optioned for a movie last fall. Looks like that unlikely project is going forward. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron Diaz is in final negotiations to star. Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) will direct.The description of the plot proves, as expected, it will be somewhat different from the book; “The story follows five couples who suffer the many joys of the childbirth process.”

Perhaps Diaz will be on the cover of the book’s next edition.
