I have big news:
Allie Larkin’s WHY CAN’T I BE YOU?, to Universal for producers Stacy Cramer and Heather Lieberman, and writers Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan (What’s Your Number?) attached to adapt, by Dana Spector at Paradigm on behalf of Elisabeth Weed at Weed Literary.
There was a tight publication schedule for WCIBY, and I spent a very intense stretch of time living in my head with Jenny, Fish, Myra, Robbie & Heather. I love them dearly. I actively miss them in the strangest way, and I wouldn’t have let them go to just anyone. Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan are adapting the screenplay and I am completely geeked out about it. Go look at what they’ve written. Seriously. Go. Look.
It’s been amazing to work with Heather and Stacy to get to this point. They’ve already moved mountains, and I can’t wait to see where it all goes from here.
We might actually get to see Robbie!
