Over the past few years we’ve seen a massive rise in the quality and number of feature-length documentaries hit theaters - and Hollywood is taking notice. One of the more underrated gems, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE, has just seen its director get a brand new gig.

Deadline is reporting that RJ Cutler will be directing an adaptation of the Lee Tulloch novel, Fabulous Nobodies.

Yet another fashion narrative, the film will be the director’s first scripted film and is “set in the 1980s downtown club scene of New York, where a group of people lived and breathed fashion before it took over the world.”

The film will be produced by Cutler, Julie Anne Quay, and former V Magazine editor Gail Yon, so the film definitely has a lot of intrigue behind it. Personally, as a huge fan of SEPTEMBER ISSUE, this sounds like a perfect follow up. I’m a fan of Cutler’s work, so while I’m not familiar with the novel, it does seem like it could be something quite special.
