Screen Gems Calls "The Maintenance Man" Up



Screen Gems has secured rights to develop a big screen adaptation of Michael Baisden's 1999 best-selling novel "The Maintenance Man."

Giving it a go, Screen Gems is on the track to develop a movie titled "The Maintenance Man" from Michael Baisden's best-selling novel of the same name telling about a gigolo in existential crisis, Variety has learned.

Story centers on a handsome Julliard graduate who puts his aspirations for a music career on the backburner after he becomes a male prostitute who makes a fortune as the hired companion of married women. Baisden, host of the ABC Radio Network show "Love, Lust and Lies," covered all of those bases in his novel, which instantly became a bestseller after he self-published it in 1999.

Names to either star or direct have not yet been revealed, but it is confirmed that Baisden will pen the script alongside Ralph Farquhar, who is set to also produce the flick together with Dwayne Corbitt.
