Jason Reitman Options “Elliot Allagash”

Indian Paintbrush and Jason Reitman’s Right of Way Films has optioned movie rights to SNL writer Simon Rich’s novel “Elliot Allagash” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The private school-set satire follows Seymour Herson, a boy regularly picked on who is taken under the wing of the titular character who regularly gets drunk and enjoys villainy.

Reitman will produce and might direct but hasn’t been determined.
