Joe Mande, comedian and man behind the notorious Look at This Fucking Hipster blog, is now doing what every New Yorker does at some point—he’s writing a screenplay. In fact, he’s adapting Glenn Beck’s new bestselling political thriller, The Overton Window, about a handsome public-relations executive who teams up with a group of “patriots” after a horrific attack on America. As the book’s description reads, the attack “puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don’t know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact.” Are you rolling your eyes yet? Tonight, Mande and company read from his screenplay. Bring all your agent friends.
