Fox to Adapt How to Talk to Girls
Tue, 16 Dec 2008 12:28:24
Fox has acquired the film rights to How to Talk to Girls, the 46-page self-help pamphlet that was written by nine-year-old Colorado resident Alex Greven. The book has garnered nationwide attention as of late and Fox is taking advantage of popular culture's interest in the cute and innocent manual.
Greven initially sold How to Talk to Girls at his school's book fair for $3 a pop. He wrote it after he noticed his male schoolmates having trouble talking to members of the opposite sex. The book, which was picked up and published by Harper Collins last month, is aimed at people of all ages, thanks to the universal advice that is offered within its pages. Some of Greven's tips include "comb your hair" and "notice things like big earrings and fancy dresses," which can tell you how "pretty" a girl is.
Fox acquired the rights in the low-to-mid six figure range. No producers, writers, cast, or production dates have been selected as of press time.
