Paramount Spends Time "Moonwalking with Einstein"



Paramount Pictures has snatched rights to Joshua Foer's upcoming novel "Moonwalking with Einstein" to develop it into film feature.

Adding up the long list of upcoming book-based film projects, Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to a Joshua Foer's novel in a preemptive deal to develop it as a potential directing vehicle for "Nacho Libre" writer Mike White, Variety has learned.

Entitled "Moonwalking with Einstein" like the book's title, the picture will bring into life the novel's content which chronicles Foer's real experience in the world of competitive memorizers. It is still unclear yet whether White will also pen the script or not.

A subsidiary of media conglomerate Viacom based in Hollywood, California, Paramount Pictures was founded in 1914 and has become the longest-lived film studio ever after Denmark's Nordisk Film. Some of its recent productions include "Failure to Launch", "Last Holiday", "World Trade Center", and "Jackass: Number Two."
