"Crazy, Stupid, Love" writers/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa have done a deal to direct the Tina Fey-led "Taliban Shuffle" for Paramount Pictures.
An adaptation of journalist Kim Barker's wartime memoir, the story deals with her arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul.
There she filed stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture.
Fey and Lorne Michaels will produce. Robert Carlock ("30 Rock") penned the script.
