Eat, Pray, Love Parody Coming to the Big Screen

A kind of Judd Apatow-style male version of Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat, Pray, Love will be made into a movie (before the book it’s based on is even published). Ha! Take that, Oprah! It’s called Drink, Play, F@#K!

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

The soon-to-be-published “Play,” by comedy writer Andrew Gottlieb, tells the fictional story of Bob Sullivan, a man who, seeking solace after his wife leaves him, goes on a bender in Ireland, takes a gambling jaunt to Las Vegas and a embarks on a sex-tourism trip to Thailand. Grove Press is scheduled to publish the tome early next year.

Meanwhile, Ms. Gilbert’s memoir, which seemed to be required subway reading for about every New York woman for the past two years, is also being developed into movie, with Julia Roberts attached to star. We hope she’s getting puffy from all that pasta and gelato.
