Fox to Adapt 9 Year-Old's Book Series

Posted: December 9th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Fox to Adapt 9 Year-OldSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox has optioned rights to "How to Talk to Girls," a newly published advice guide written by Alec Greven, a 9-year-old expert on the subject.

The first of a four-book series, "How to Talk to Girls" was published on November 25th by HarperCollins, the publishing house that is a sister company to Fox. The film deal encompasses all four volumes.

The studio hasn't set a writer yet or assigned a producer, but 20th production co-president Alex Young sparked to the story of Greven, who was 8 when he began writing the book as an assignment for his third-grade class, to help classmates break the ice with members of the opposite sex. The result was a pamphlet that sold at his school's book fair for $3.

The advice seems simple enough to follow: Greven's tips range from the facts of life ("Sometimes, you get a girl to like you, then she ditches you. Life is hard, move on!"), to getting a girl's attention ("Show off a skill, like playing soccer or anything else that you are good at.") to talking to girls ("You also have to be aware that girls win most of the arguments.") to dealing with crushes ("It can be very hard to get a girl to like you. Sometimes it takes years! Whatever happens, just don't act desperate.").

Is anyone else wondering how he acquired so much experience?

This just in: Fox adopts four-year old's aquamarine crayon scribbling into multi-billon dollar 3D film! I mean, this is Fox and aside from 24, who the f*ck cares what Fox does?

Another brilliant move on Fox's part. They really know what sells. I mean, they've had such a successful year. Here's to 18 seasons of Family Guy spin-offs.

Wow, I wonder who has connections or owes a favor for this mental choice to have gone down.?
