Bad Idea, Wolfe

News Item: Movie adaptation on the way for Tom Wolfe's novel "I Am Charlotte Simmons"

Look at it this way: Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities" was one of the best novels of the past 25 years, and was made into a legendarily disastrous movie. Why would 'Charlotte Simmons,' which was both much less successful and much less good, make a good movie? Then again, since it's about oversexed college kids, that might make it more cinematic.

The cast of "Gossip Girl" and "One Tree Hill" have to build film careers somehow.
