Universal rolls with ‘Rocks’ writers

Phirman, Schneider to adapt Goldman book

Universal Pictures has tapped Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider to adapt Todd Harris Goldman’s book “Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks at Them!”

Studio optioned the sarcastic advice tome and has attached Walt Becker to produce.

The scribes, who honed their comedic skills as members of L.A.’s Upright Citizens Brigade group, are also working on original music and lyrics for the pic.

The 80-page book, which is accompanied by Goldman’s illustrations, offers a tongue-in-cheek look at boys as seen through the eyes of girls.

Debbie Liebling and Kristin Lowe will oversee for Universal.

Phirman and Schneider’s credits include the upcoming “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” for Disney. They are also rewriting “Catfight” for New Line and Contra Film.

They are repped by Paradigm. Phirman is additionally handled by Mosaic, and Schneider is managed by Principato Young.

Goldman is repped by CAA.
