Harmony Korine is working on an adaptation of Alissa Nutting’s Tampa, the filmmaker told the crowd at the Miami Beach Cinematheque according to the Playlist. The novel, which concerns a 26-year-old middle-school teacher’s attempts to seduce the 14-year-old boy of her dreams, is so perfectly Korinian that Slate once begged Hollywood to hire him to direct the movie version. (Who ever said that #content can’t accomplish anything?) Korine suggested the film might air on HBO, which would fill the inappropriately sexual student-teacher gap left by the ending of Girls.
