GreeneStreet Options Buckley’s Boomsday


GreeneStreet Films has teamed with Das Films to option “Boomsday,” a satirical novel by “Thank You for Smoking” author Christopher Buckley.

Ron Bass has been set to write the script.

The protagonist is a D.C. lobbyist who casts herself in the center of a firestorm after she half-jokingly blogs a solution to the stress that retiring baby boomers will place on the Social Security system: a voluntary suicide program for the aging.

GreeneStreet Films will next finance and produce The Invisible Woman, to be directed by Cloverfield helmer Matt Reeves.
