Scott Rudin is set to adapt the high-society memoir Oh the Glory of It All for the screen, based on Sean Wilsey's book chronicling his time growing up amid the 1980s San Francisco elite.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the characters who raised Wilsey seem to have jumped straight out of a John Irving novel: a drama-prone globetrotting mother who asks her son to commit suicide with her, a distant father who enjoys unnecessary helicopter rides, and a truly wicked stepmother. The book tracks his journey from the dubious role models to a tour of boarding schools and an Italian "therapeutic community."

No production date has been set.
