Gus Van Sant
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Gus Van Sant is attached to direct a film adaptation of Tom Wolfe's 1967 book "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test."


Drawing in a potential material to his clutch, Gus Van Sant reportedly is going to make "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" his next directing project with Lance Black to pen the screenplay.

Pic is an adaptation of Tom Wolfe's hallucinogenic tome which details a cross-country road trip that "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" author Ken Kesey orchestrated with a group called the Merry Pranksters. It will focus on Kesey and include events that occurred after the road trip.

Names to star have not yet been revealed, but it is learned that Richard Gladstein will serve as producer via his FilmColony shingle. The man recently completed producing "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" which Fox-Walden is set to release this fall as well as "The Nanny Diaries" and "Killshot."
