Paramount Pictures has acquired the movie rights; Brad Pitt's production company Plan B will produce the film. In the October '06 issue of Fangoria Magazine, Brooks explains that he will not be writing the screenplay for the motion picture, as he feels he is not an accomplished enough screenwriter to "do it right."
