Tucker Max will adapt his bawdy best-seller “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” into a big-screen comedy with director Bob Gosse, says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Hell,” now No. 12 on the New York Times best-seller list after a three-year run, chronicles Max’s alcohol-fueled true adventures. The film will follow his 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.
Pinkslip Pictures’ Max Wong (Bring It On) and Karen Firestone will produce with the Collective’s Aaron Ray (Big Momma’s House), Max and co-screenwriter Nils Parker.
The privately financed feature begins shooting June 2 in Louisiana.
