Ryerson graduate Robyn Doolittle has just sold the film and television rights of her newly published book Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story to Blue Ice Pictures, a Toronto-based production company.
Doolittle’s Crazy Town has been on the market for only one week.
The book tracks Rob Ford’s rise to mayor and subsequent scandals from Doolittle’s perspective as a reporter for the Toronto Star.
Blue Ice Pictures executive Daniel Iron will bring the story to the screen. Iron has titles such as The Bang Bang Club, Cairo Time and Away From Her under his belt.
“Robyn Doolittle’s book is a testament to dogged, fearless and exemplary journalism. We are excited to be working with Ms. Doolittle to bring this story to the screen,” Iron said in a statement.
Crazy Town currently holds a spot as the No. 1 bestselling book on Amazon.ca.
