GreeneStreet Plans Buckley’s Boomsday

GreeneStreet Films has teamed with Das Films to option Christopher Buckley’s satirical novel “Boomsday” says Variety.

The protagonist is a D.C. lobbyist who casts herself in the center of a firestorm after she half-jokingly blogs a solution to the stress that retiring baby boomers will place on the Social Security system: a voluntary suicide program for the aging.

Ron Bass will adapt the script. Buckley also penned “Thank You for Smoking”
