Deadline is reporting that Fox Searchlight has set Ghost World graphic novel writer Daniel Clowes to adapt his novel Wilson as a potential directing vehicle for Alexander Payne.

Alexander Payne's Ad Hominem will produce with Joshua Donen, on behalf of Sam Raimi's Stars Road.

Wilson tells the story of an opinionated middle-aged loner who loves his dog and maybe nobody else and who begins a quest to find human connection with his ex-wife. You know that can't end well.

No production date has been set.
