Kid Food Critic Might Become a Movie Star, Too

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?

well i guess everyone likes to hear great things about kids but i hate to say it - kids palates aren't really like mine so i'm not sure that i'll be all that interested in what he has to say. it's not me being mean about it - i'm just being honest about the way that i feel about the whole story.

The story sounds like it would make a great book. I'm not so sure about the movie.
