Neil LaBute Will Adapt Some Girl(s) For the Screen; Adam Brody Will Star
17 Jan 2012
Adam Brody, best known for his work on the Fox series "The OC," has signed on to star in a film adaptation of Neil LaBute's Some Girl(s), according to the Hollywood Reporter.
LaBute, playwright of the Drama Desk Award-nominated Reasons to Be Pretty, will adapt his play for the screen. The independently financed feature film will be directed by Jennifer Getzinger.
In the upcoming film, Brody will star as a writer who travels cross-country to see his four ex-girlfriends before he gets married.
LaBute's Some Girl(s) premiered in a MCC Theatre production, which opened June 8, 2006, at Off-Broadway's Lucille Lortel Theatre. The play starred "Will & Grace" actor Eric McCormack as well as Fran Drescher, Judy Reyes, Brooke Smith and Maura Tierney.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
