Alcon Entertainment has acquired the rights to Judy Davids’ comedic novel “Rock Star Mommy: My Life as a Rocker Mom,” which they will develop into a feature film.
Karen McCullah will write the film adaptation of Davids’ true account of her journey as an under-appreciated housewife and soccer mom pursuing her dream by forming an unlikely surf-rock punk band called Mydols.
Mark Clayman (“The Pursuit of Happyness”) will produce along with Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. Carl Rogers, head of development at Alcon, will oversee the project.
McCullah’s is currently working on “The Expendabelles,” a female-driven take on the popular film franchise “The Expendables” for VVS Films. She is repped by Paradigm and Content Engine.
Alcon has recently dated its “Blade Runner 2” for Jan. 12, 2018, and started development on an adaptation of the popular children’s book “Pete the Cat” for television. It also tapped Isaac Adamson to pen the comedy “Bubbles.”
The studio is in post-production on the road trip comedy “Bastards,” starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms.
