The adaptation of Nick Flynn’s best-selling memoir “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” has landed at Fox 2000.
Flynn’s memoir revolves around his experiences as a case worker for the homeless and his relationship with his father. As a teenager, Flynn had received letters from his estranged father, a delusional con man and self-proclaimed poet.
The memoir follows Flynn and his father, whose self-destructive behavior eventually drives him onto the streets and into the homeless shelter where Flynn works.
The picture originally was set up at Sony Pictures but recently was put into turnaround. Fox 2000 then picked up the auction.
Michael Costigan along with Chris & Paul Weitz will produce. Paul (“In Good Company”, “About a Boy”) is planning to direct.
