WIP add another Perrotta adventure to the ‘Wish’ list

Fans of Todd Fields’ Little Children and Alexandre Payne’s Election can look towards the future for a renewed sense of hope. In what sounds like another high-profile indiewood project, the folks at Warner Independent
Pictures
are wrangling the rights to the much traveled Tom Perrotta book to script of The Wishbones. The project switched hands going from Fox then to New Line and now have fallen in safe hands since this is now the second project that producers Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are teaming with WIP on a Perrotta script/novel –  The Abstinence
Teacher
is currently in the works. THR reports that ChickFlicks’ Sara Risher will executive produce, and WIP vp production Lauren Craniotes will oversee for the studio.

This follows a 30-year-old failed musician living with his parents in New
Jersey. On the eve of marrying a longtime girlfriend, he begins an
affair with a bohemian poet from Manhattan who makes him question his
life and future.

Message to WIP and the producers. Give Todd Fields a call.
