Variety reports that MTV and Paramount are planning to make a movie of the Bong Hits 4 Jesus case. I initially imagined a cross between Gideon's Trumpet and Dude, Where's My Car, but apparently the creative team wants to take the story in a different direction:
"The heart of this story is the relationship between a father and son," [producer Michael] Shamberg said. "Frank Frederick was an insurance adjuster facing the loss of his job if his son didn't back down."
Frederick, who'd often discussed the importance of First Amendment rights with his son at the dinner table, would not force his son to drop the case, and he was fired from his job.
I'm guessing the film ends on a down note: Desperate for cash, father and son sell their story to a sleazy Hollywood producer.
