Some of you may remember the book "It's Kind of a Funny Story" that came out back in 2006 about a depressed teenager checked into a psychiatric hospital. Well, in an unseen turn of events (for those of us not watching the progress of the book, of course) it has been bought and filmed by Focus Features, and it's set to come out on the 8th of October.
I, for one, am pleased with this turn of events. It's kind of hard to go wrong with book-to-film adaptations (though there are exceptions, I know), and it's just adds more for the Young Adult community.
The film premieres at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival on the 9th for anyone who's interested.Want to check out the book? Already got it covered for you.
This has been Taylor, filling in for Amanda (her internet is down at the moment). If all goes well, you'll see her back shortly.
