Rob Ford movie deal

Yup, that Rob Ford book already has a movie deal

Crazy Town by Toronto Star reporter Robyn Doolittle, a.k.a. one of the only people to have ever seen the infamous Rob Ford crack video, is hot off the press but it looks like the film rights have already been acquired. Doolittle is fresh from her appearance on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the books are selling like, well, crazy (it's at #1 on the Amazon.ca's bestsellers list). The tell-all book details the incidents leading up to and surrounding the ongoing scandals at City Hall, and no one will be surprised to hear that the story scored a film deal. Or at least, some kind of movie deal.

Producer Daniel Iron's Blue Ice Pictures, formerly Foundry Films (Cairo Time, Watermark, Inescapable starring Marisa Tomei), has nabbed the rights, and while Blue Ice apparently has "offices in Los Angeles, London, Johannesburg, and Cape Town," those offices might just be phone booths judging by this Weebly page. Will this be a CanCon blockbuster, or a terrible TV movie starring some guy who looks nothing like Chris Farley? All we know is the answer to "does Rob Ford deserve more celebrity status?" remains a solid "no."
