Scott Rudin and Miramax will turn Sean Wilsey’s high-society memoir “Oh the Glory of It All” into a feature film says The Hollywood Reporter.
Mike White will produce and pen the adapted screenplay which chronicles Wilsey’s time growing up amid the 1980s San Francisco elite.
Characters include a drama-prone globetrotting mother who asks her son to commit suicide with her, a distant father who enjoys unnecessary helicopter rides, and a truly wicked stepmother.
The book tracks his journey from the dubious role models to a tour of boarding schools and an Italian “therapeutic community.”
Armistead Maupin modeled a character in his “Tales of the City” novels on Wilsey’s socialite mother, who entertained movie stars and Black Panthers alike in her penthouse.
