Hollywood picks up 1970s self-help classic How To Pick Up Girls!
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Hollywood has picked up How To Pick Up Girls! - the men's paperback self-help classic from the 1970s that went on to become a sacred text of the Internet-driven "seduction community".
In a statement on Friday, Los Angeles sales and distribution house The Exchange said it has optioned Eric Weber's book with the goal of producing a feature film.
Weber, a writer and director who scripted a 1978 TV movie version of his bestseller, will develop the project as an executive producer. No director has yet been selected.
"The pill, the (Rolling) Stones - a lot was new in New York when I started interviewing women for How To Pick Up Girls!" said Weber in the statement.
