Manhattan Loverboy: According to Variety, Writer-director Austin Chick is adapting Arthur Nersesian's novel Manhattan Loverboy with an eye to direct for Cherry Road Films.

Nersesian's novel follows a young Columbia U. student who must deal with the consequences of angering a powerful CEO, leading to a quasi-existential battle between individual and corporation.

Chick wrote and directed XX/XY, starring Mark Ruffalo, which preemed at Sundance in 2002 and was released by IFC Films last year.
