Focus Features has released the first official trailer for a film adaptation of Nick Flynn‘s memoir, Another Bulls**t Night In Suck City. We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think?
According to Deadline, Oscar nominated-director Paul Weitz helmed the project and co-wrote the screenplay. The film will hit theaters in spring 2012.
Here’s more from Fandango: “The movie has undergone several title changes over the past year, beginning with its crude Another Bulls**t Night in Suck City to Another Night to let’s shelve this thing for a couple months and revisit it another day. Alas, we’ve arrived at the rather benign compromise of Being Flynn which finds Robert DeNiro playing a brilliant but troubled writer/father who through some fated coincidence meets a twenty-something man (Paul Dano) who works at a homeless shelter in Boston. The twist – the young man is his son!”
Flynn published his memoir in 2004 and followed it up in 2010 with a second memoir titled The Ticking Is the Bomb. He has also written a play and three poetry collections. (via Shelf Awareness)
