Okay, so I didn't get this from the most reliable source, but...well, it made me curious. One of my college professors told me that they're going to make a film adaptation of this and that they're filming it in Toronto. I'm a bit skeptical about believing him because I haven't read anything about it at all online. I figured if it happened, Chris would write about it in his blog, but I skimmed through it, and couldn't find anything. Anyone know if it's true or not?

Betty Thomas and Fox have both You Suck and Bloodsucking Fiends, but I haven't heard a word about casting or location. In fact, last I heard, they didn't have a script yet.

Script? What the hell's a script got to do with making a movie?

Confused

I feel that authors of books being made to movies should be the only ones allowed to write the scripts for them!!!! That way you know that even if it didn't turn out the way you wanted it was the author's true vision.... ya know??

But, of course I would see it no matter who did the script and everything....
oohhhh.....let's think of who could play the characters?!.........

Ok, I want to direct, with my dream cast. And only if Christopher Moore is involved.

Dream Cast:
Jenna Fischer is Jody
Justin Long is Tommy
Benjamin Bratt is Rivera
Cavuto is harder to figure out though.
Michelle Trachtenberg is Abby Normal
Jessica Beil is Blue
With Special Guest Appearance by John Cusack as Charlie Asher!
