It's always interesting to read something about book bestseller lists. Where a big movie can come and go in the flurry of a few weeks or a month, to be a big, noteworthy text means to stick around for years. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Tucker Max's I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, which has been on the New York Times bestseller list for 3 flipping years and has had a number of adaptation deals fall through, is going to be whipped up into a big-screen comedy that Max will write, and Bob Gosse (Niagara, Niagara) will direct.

As quoted in the introduction: "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

Yes, folks, another jerky dude movie, but let's hope this one won't star Dane Cook. The film will focus on Max's "trip to a friend's bachelor party, where he ensnares the groom in a lie that threatens the wedding, then abandons him to pursue further carnal knowledge. After being banned from the nuptials, Max attempts to get back into his friend's good graces." Well, at least this bachelor party craziness won't end up with insanity and dead prostitutes. The film, which is being privately financed, will slip into production June 2 in Louisiana.
