There is nothing particularly amazing about this book, but I am telling you right now if it doesn’t get picked up to be a movie than I would be a better studio head than the studio heads.
Bond Girl, the thinly-fictionalized account of a young girl’s life on Wall Street, was written by a former woman trader and is salacious in it’s details of life on the street. It’s all very Devil Wear’s Prada, but with more excess and more money and more swearing and drinking and bad behavior.
It’s a quick, fun read, but it would be a better movie. And, it would be a popular movie.
And, I know how I would adapt it to the screen. So, I might just go ahead and write that script.
