GreeneStreet Films and Das Films have teamed up for Boomsday, optioning the satirical novel by Thank You for Smoking author Christopher Buckley.

According to Variety, Ron Bass has been set to write the script, which centers on a D.C. lobbyist who casts herself in the center of a firestorm after she half-jokingly blogs a solution to the stress that retiring baby boomers will place on the Social Security system: a voluntary suicide program for the aging.

"Rarely do you find such powerful and timely material that lends itself so well to film, and Ron Bass is a great fit to adapt it," said GreeneStreet's John Penotti.

No production date has been set.
