"8 Simple Rules for Marrying My Daughter", the sequel to W. Bruce Cameron's bestseller-turned-hit television series "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" is said to be brought to the big screen. According to Hollywood Reporter, the novel adaptation film has been picked up to be a feature film with the aid of Wendy Finerman, the producer of "The Devil Wears Prada".
The novel will be adapted into a film by its own writer Cameron with the help of the author of the "Grrl Genius Guide" book series, Cathryn Michon. The film will be produced by 26 Films and will bring up the comedy tone as the television series starring the late John Ritter. Further, the film will resolve around a divorced dad who is having a younger girlfriend, while dealing with the fact that his two daughters get engaged at the same time.
Though it is said that the film adaptation will be made, Cameron's sequel novel hasn't been published yet. It is scheduled to be published on April 8 by Simon & Schuster imprint Fireside. Cameron, who once worked with Michon in scripting 2006 comedy feature "Cook-Off!" has won the 2006 Robert Benchley Society Award for Humor and has won two National Society of Newspaper Columnists awards for best humor columnist.
