Ken Marino and Erica Oyama Are Adapting ‘Go the Fuck to Sleep’


Fox is turning the profane children’s book Go the Fuck to Sleep into a movie, and Deadline reports that Ken Marino and Erica Oyama Marino, the husband-wife team behind the hilarious Yahoo web series Burning Love, are writing the script. From author Adam Mansbach and illustrator Ricardo Cortes, Go the Fuck to Sleep is described as “a children’s book for adults” that follows a frustrated father not being able to get his daughter to sleep. An audiobook version read by Samuel L. Jackson (embedded below) became a big internet hit two years ago. This seems like an awfully flimsy basis for a movie and as The AV Club points out, the book only has one joke, but Ken Marino and Erica Oyama are super funny and talented writers who are capable of pulling it off.
