diarywimpykid.jpgWhat started out as a web comic, then a series of books, is now heading to the silver screen. Fox 2000 is has purchased the rights to create a live action adaptation of the journal of Jeff Kinney’s best-selling title.

The studio purchased all rights to the five novels, composed of handwriting and animation, chronicling the daily indignities faced by middle school student Greg Heffley. Former Buena Vista president Nina Jacobson will produce the first feature, with more to possibly follow. Carla Hacken is overseeing the film’s development for the studio.

Since the rights have just been purchased, no director or writer has been attached.
