Eileen Cook's comedic novel In the Stars is being developed for a big screen adaptation by New Line Cinema. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jane O'Brien has been hired to write the screenplay.
The book is about a woman who fakes being a psychic so that she can give her ex-boyfriend's new fiance a bogus reading. When her false predictions come true, the woman finds herself flung into the spotlight. She has trouble dealing with this newfound fame and must come to terms with her own life.
Eileen O'Brien is Conan O'Brien's sister. In the past, she has written for such shows as The Simpsons and Futurama.
