Baghdad Blogger: The Movie

So, it wasn’t my wittiest entry, but I did predict there would be a movie based on Salam Pax’s blog back in August of 2003. Now it’s really happening. Media group Intermedia is currently searching for a screenwriter. It’s interesting how the film is being pitched, too:

“He’s like a Nick Hornby in the middle of a war,” Scott Kroopf, chairman of the company’s film division, told film industry website ScreenDaily.com.

In general, I’ll be interested to see how the film industry portrays this war, and it seems promising to see a film made from Salam’s perspective.
