Of all the books to be adapted into films, we've gotta say, this is the last one we ever expected - but we can get behind this. According to Deadline, Burning Love star Ken Marino and his wife, Erica Oyama, have signed on to adapt the book for Fox 2000 Pictures and Twilight Saga producer Karen Rosenfelt. Sounds like a film that'd be fun for the whole family!

The book, which is described as a "children's book for adults," was penned by Adam Mansbach after he became so exasperated that his two-year-old daughter would take over two hours to fall asleep. Including lines like, "It’s been thirty-eight minutes already/ Jesus Christ, what the fuck? Go to sleep," it was a genius concept made even better when Samuel L. Jackson recorded a reading of it that went viral.

Marino, in addition to starring in and writing for Burning Love, has also appeared in Party Down in the past. His wife, Oyama, is also a writer for Burning Love

The most important question, though: When there is a script, can Samuel L. Jackson star?
