Last month, when the New York Times wrote an article about David Fishman, a 12-year-old aspiring food critic, readers everywhere were thoroughly amused.
Turns out readers weren't the only ones to find the article entertaining. Variety reports that Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to the story, which focuses on Fishman's journal of his fine dining experiences, as well as his friendship with a prominent restaurateur.
Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels will produce the adaptation, along with John Goldwyn, who felt the article "offered a recipe for a youth-themed empowerment film."
The producers are considering securing life rights of Fishman. I wonder if he would play himself in a movie about his life. Do you think the story would translate into a compelling story on film?
