Big Jewcy alumni Stephen Elliott is having a good week.

First his book, The Adderall Diaries,  gets the paperback treatment.  Then it’s announced that James Franco has optioned the book, and plans to write, direct and star in the film adaptation.

According to The New York Observer:

“Mr. Elliot went on to say that he is slated to consult on the project. He added that he has never met Mr. Franco, and the deal was conducted through both of their agents at William Morris. A representative at the agency confirmed that the talks were underway.”

If that wasn’t enough, Perez Hilton mentioned the news, and seemed to give the project his blessing by calling Elliott,”mildly insane,” but stopping short of defacing a picture of the scribe.

That’s a compliment in Hilton’s book…I think.
