Could a movie social media status updates be a hit? Paramount Pictures is hoping so according to Deadline. The studio has bought Status Update, a pitch by Sascha Rothchild and Randi Barnes. The project is described as "a high school comedy that utilizes social media, particularly Facebook.
Rothchild most recently sold her pitch Who Invited Her? to Dreamworks with Reese Witherspoon attached, and she adapted her book How To Be Divorced By 30 for Universal. Barnes co-wrote the animated film Dorothy Of Oz.
I was not sure how Easy-A would do, but it turned out to be funny. If Status Update gets someone like Emma Stone to lead it could be a hit at the box office. What do you think?
