By Dave McNary

MGM has acquired domestic rights to "How To Lose Friends and Alienate People" and plans to release the comedy on Oct. 3 in conjunction with Autonomous Films.

Pic, based on Toby Young’s memoir, centers on an English journalist who proves a failure on the staff of New York’s most prestigious magazine as his bad manners and vulgar pranks lead to monumental mishaps.

Kirsten Dunst, Megan Fox, Danny Huston, Gillian Anderson and Jeff Bridges also star.

Robert B. Weide directed from a script by Young and Peter Straughan.
