'Teacher's' pets: Dayton, Faris

9 December 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, directors of the indie hit "Little Miss Sunshine", have set their sights on a new production, Warner Independent Pictures' adaptation of "The Abstinence Teacher", based on the forthcoming novel by Tom Perrotta.

The husband-and-wife directing team are in negotiations to helm the project, which will be written for the screen by Perrotta, author of "Election" and "Little Children".

Bona Fide Prods.' Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa, who produced "Sunshine" and "Little Children", are set to produce.

The novel "The Abstinence Teacher", set to debut in the fall from St. Martin's Press, is set in small-town middle America, where a divorced sex-education teacher and mother of two is forced to contend with the town's more conservative groups. While fighting to keep her freedom to teach students about sex, she finds herself falling for her daughter's born-again soccer coach.

"I admire Jonathan and Valerie's work, and along with Albert, Ron and Tom, they are a very talented group with great sensibilities, and we're excited to work with them," Warner Independent president Polly Cohen said. »

Wip don't practice 'Abstinence'

22 September 2006 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Quick Links > The Abstinence Teacher > Warner Independent Pictures > Little Children Unless you are Shakespeare or Clancy, there are not too many others that get to enjoy book to screen adaptations of their work and these days, if your name is Tom Perrotta you can’t be complaining. After the 99’ Broderick/Witherspoon dark comedy called Election gave viewers/readers insight into overzealous teachers and students, this upcoming autumn we’ll get the equal opportunity to revel in the upcoming (and perhaps the best film of the year) Little Children.

The taker? Warner Independent Pictures. Based on the upcoming 2007 novel due out next year from St. Martin's Press, The Abstinence Teacher is »
