Tinder is a location-based dating and social discovery service app that facilitates communication between mutually interested users. The app was launched in 2012, and by 2014 it was registering about one billion "swipes" per day, in which the user uses a swiping motion to choose the photos of other users.

Niija Kuykendall and Julia Spiro are overseeing for the studio. Merryman and Newman wrote the script for Lionsgate's English-language remake of family comedy Instructions Not Included, the top-grossing Spanish-language film released in the U.S.

Di Novi's credits include the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, which grossed over $140 million worldwide, Practical Magic,  A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle and the two Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films.
