Uhls is ‘Bad’ for Peculiar

'Club' scribe knows 'How'

“Fight Club” screenwriter Jim Uhls has optioned film rights to David Bowker’s upcoming mystery “How to Be Bad” for his Peculiar Films shingle.

“Bad” centers on an average guy in his 20s whose life is turned upside-down when an old flame gives him a list with three names on it and suggests she’ll be his if he will snuff out one of them.

Bowker, a British native, has penned “The Death Prayer,” “The Butcher of Glastonbury,” “Rawhead,” “The Secret Sexist” and “I Love My Smith & Wesson.”

Uhls and former MGM exec Yalda Tehranian-Uhls launched Peculiar Films in 2003. He is developing “Paranoid,” a pilot for FX, and “Flicker” for Darren Aronofsky at New Regency.
