Columbia Pictures has pick up the rights to Judith Viorst's best-selling book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" to turn it into a big screen feature.

More children movies are coming underway. Following DreamWorks' decision to make "Camp Creepy Time", Columbia Pictures will also develop one titled "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day", which is an adaptation from Judith Viorst's children's book of the same name, The Hollywood Reported has revealed.

In bringing up the project to the surface, the studio has already appointed Mike Bender to write the screenplay with Neal Moritz producing through his Original Film. As for the premise, the movie will likely to stay close to the book's story which tells about a young boy's trials and tribulations as he is experiencing one of his worst days ever.

The original version, published in 1972, was a best-selling work and has collected a number of awards while kicking off a series of "Alexander" titles that Viorst wrote, such as "Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday" and "Alexander, Who's Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move."
