5. Super Sad True Love Story (TBA)
It has been quite a while since Ben Stiller nabbed the project to develop, adapt, produce and direct the 2010 novel ‘Super Sad True Love Story’ for a television series with writer Karl Gajdusek. There has not been much information from a long time as to the future of the project. What we really expect that the TV series comes through since it has been very long that we have seen a Ben Stiller directorial. What makes this project special is that it is one of the first TV series that Stiller is laying his hands on. The audience can expect some fresh zingy touch of Stiller in the series.
The book’s author Gary Shteyngart will serve as an executive producer with Stiller and Gajdusek, who is penning the television adaptation. ‘Super Sad True Love Story’ is a satire of contemporary American values and trends, including the erosion of American political values, the obsession with youth, and the urge to publish personal information through social networking. A unique blend of comedy, tragedy, absurdity and neurosis, the epistolary novel is built around the diaries of protagonist Lenny Abramov and the online posts of Eunice, telling their love story against the backdrop of an American dystopia.
