Paramount Vantage has picked up the rights to Grant Stoddard's debut book, Working Stiff: A Memoir.

Emily Cook and Kathy Greenberg are attached to write the screenplay; the film will chronicle Stoddard's journey from London student dropout to celebrated sex columnist for Nerve.com in New York. In his weekly column - I Did It for Science - the author recounts his hilarious, and often exotic, sexual misadventures and the lasting effects they have on him.

A production schedule has not been set for Working Stiff: A Memoir.
