Kyle Patirck Alvarez has a knack for bringing the written word to the big screen. His 2009 film Easier With Practice was adapted from a 2006 GQ article by Davy Rothbart, and Alvarez has now set his sites on another autobiographical story. The director plans to adapt David Sedaris’ short story “C.O.G.” into a film.

“C.O.G.” comes from Sedaris’ 1997 book Naked, one of his many collections of hilarious short stories and essays. This particular story recounts Sedaris’ experience working with a fanatical Christian, a self-described “Child Of God,” who fashioned stone clocks in the shape of Oregon.

Alvarez will write the screenplay and direct the film.
