Deadline.com reports that screen rights for WEEKLY STANDARD senior editor Andy Ferguson's Crazy U: One Dad’s Crash Course in Getting His Kid Into College are being acquired by New Line Cinema. "The film will be developed as a potential star vehicle for Will Ferrell," the website reports.

The book is about one father’s adventures trying to brave the cutthroat competition to get his son accepted into the perfect college.

Obsessed with keeping his son from making that one wrong step that could dash the youth’s dreams, dad tries to get an audience with the most sought after and expensive private college consultant in the country, insinuates himself in helping his son past the SATs, and all the campus tours and stressful admissions interviews, all culminating in waiting for the fat envelope that will determine success or failure in getting into an elite school that will siphon off all dad’s savings.
