What does a big-time Hollywood producer do after she's finished making a fortune off a series of terrible Mormon propaganda novels about erotic vampires written for teenaged girls? She makes a movie based on a satirical children's book that's really for grownups.

It was recently announced that producer Karen Rosenfelt (Twilight) is teaming up with Erwin Stoff (All You Need Is Kill) and Fox 2000 to make a film adaptation of Adam Mansbach'sNew York Times best-seller Go the Fuck to Sleep. This book, in case you didn't know, is absolutely hilarious, and in terms of literary merit it far surpasses that nonsense churned out by Stephanie Meyer. Moreover, Rosenfelt has apparently signed brilliant husband-and-wife writing team Ken Marino (Role Models, Wanderlust) and Erica Oyama (Burning Love) to "adapt" the script. Nevertheless, it's hard to see how they're going to stretch a little story about a parent with a knack for cursing at his kid into a full-length feature film.

Don't take my word for it, though. Here's a narration of Go the Fuck to Sleep performed by a guy who definitely knows how to drop some f-bombs—Samuel L. Jackson.
