Marlon Wayans will star in and produce The Year of Living Biblically for Paramount. Plan B picked up rights to A.J. Jacobs’ best-selling nonfiction book in 2005, two years before it was published by Simon & Schuster.
For the book, subtitled “One Man’s Humble Quest to Obey the Bible as Literally as Possible,” Jacobs spent a year attempting to live by the rules of the Old and New Testaments, with comic and enlightening results.
Julian Farino (HBO’s “Entourage”) is attached to direct, and Jay Reiss wrote the script.
