Was tossing around ideas how to adapt some of the more difficult scenes from "Romy" for a movie with director and producer Ben Perry (Dagger "Operation Montenegro", Curse of the Gypsy, Soapdish) in a beautiful Carmel setting. In the book the monologues give insights into the characters thinking and motivation, but on screen they get boring really quickly, because nothing happens visually. The best solution may be to convert the monologues to dialogues, like Aaron Sorkin did in The Social Network wıth the deposition scenes. The other side of the dialogue would be mostly imaginary, though. For instance, Peter could be talking to an animal and tell it things he would never tell another human being. In the scenes that reference real celebrities, such as Jane Fonda or Madonna, these could make a cameo appearance and hold an imaginary conversation with the characters in the book. For parts that involve fictional characters or past celebrities we could get really creative with some over the top dream sequences along the lines of "Alice in Wonderland." Could be really fun and interesting, if done well.
