Fox Searchlight has acquired screen rights to “Silver Linings Playbook” author Matthew Quick’s 2010 novel “Sorta Like A Rock Star”.
The story follows Amber Appleton, a high school senior who secretly lives in the back of a school bus, a situation that arose when her mother’s boyfriend kicked them out.
The bus is the same one that her mother uses to drive kids to school. Despite the adversity, and a fatal tragedy, Amber is a self-proclaimed princess of hope and girl of unyielding optimism.
Laura Sandler and Amanda Harlib penned the script, while Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen, Lee Stollman and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein will produce.
