I know I joked a couple weeks ago about Amazon.com opening a church, but seems I wasn't too far off!

According to today's Variety, "Amazon.com is going from peddler to producer. In its first feature-film venture, Amazon has optioned screen rights to Keith Donohue's novel "˜The Stolen Child.' Amazon will move to secure a filmmaker and then a studio partner to turn the fantasy into a live-action feature."

Congrats to Keith! Another small victory for us writers. But honestly now: what's next for Amazon? Hmmm. How about a game show like Hollywood Squares, but with kids? Gary Coleman could hosttvg.jpg.

Speaking of films, who can name the one I just quoted?
