More Valentine’s Day surprises! As predicted in this space a mere nine months ago, Doug Brown’s upcoming nonfiction book Just Do It — in which he convinces his wife to have sex with him for 100 consecutive days — has been optioned for film. 20th Century Fox has picked up the title and will soon attach a screenwriter (we still think this concept is positively Apatovian!) “who will use the book as a template for a romantic comedy,” according to Variety.
To celebrate the deal, Brown had sex with his wife.
