Not sure why I haven't written about this sooner - but back in April, when I spoke with the cinema gifted duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden about their new film SUGAR, we wandered off-topic into what they're up to next - which is a film adaptation of the book "It's Kind of a Funny Story." What's kind of a funny story about this is that the book is my absolute favorite piece of pop culture written material and Team Ryan/Anna are my favorite two directors - not even a large pepperoni pizza could have satisfied me more at that moment. I've seen their film HALF NELSON more than any thing else.

Today I read on Wikipedia that Paramount bought the rights to "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and it's scheduled for a 2011 release.

Check out the video interview with Ryan and Anna after the jump!
