From tabloid fodder to genuine privacy issue to movie, that’s how these things go. Variety is reporting that What’s It All About? Productions has optioned Harold Evans’s book “Good Times, Bad Times” which is a He Said account of a contentious relationship between Evans and media titan Rupert Murdoch while the former was the editor of the Sunday Times.

There isn’t a script yet, but the phone tapping scandal was a massive news story that crossed over from 2011 to 2012, so it’s unsurprising that it will find its way in some form to the big screen. The catch here is that What’s It All About? isn’t exactly a major player. They’re a small shingle looking for a production partner, which means this project is miles away from being a done deal.

The big question that will propel it forward: do people want to see the mud-slinging between two men who buy ink in bulk?
