Living Biblically

Paramount has acquired film rights to A.J. Jacobs' "The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Obey the Bible As Literally As Possible" and set it up at Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment, reports Variety.

The book will chronicle and examine a year in which Jacobs, Esquire magazine's editor at large, immerses himself in the rules of the Old and New Testament. Simon & Shuster plans to publish "The Year of Living Biblically" in fall 2006.

Paramount executives on the project are Alli Shearmur, co-president of production, and Pam Abdy, senior VP of production.

Barry Sonnenfeld is also directing Jacobs' most recent book, "The Know-it-all: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World," which involves his year of reading the entire Encyclopedia.
