DreamWorks Nabs ‘Eat, Sleep, Poop’ Walter Parkes, Laurie, Macdonald to produce book adaptation.  Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson, who penned the Vince Vaughn-Reese Witherspoon comedy “Four Christmases,” are on board to write.

Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson Write about Eating, Sleeping and Pooping
DreamworksThe title says it all in screenwriting team Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson’s latest script. Eat, Sleep and Poop is the story of a successful pediatrician whose life and practice changes once his wife becomes pregnant. In other words, he thought he had the baby thing covered until it happened to him. The script is loosely based on the real life story of Dr. Scott Cohen, a Beverly Hills pediatrician who just published a guide to parenting by the same name. When the writing team – best known for the romantic comedy Four Christmases – got a hold of this book proposal and teamed up with Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and DreamWorks to develop, they knew they had something special. Script sat down with the dynamic duo to discuss how they landed the job of adapting a parenting guide into a feature length film and their success in Hollywood along the way.

  • “Poop” is a witty guidebook by Beverly Hills-based pediatrician Scott W. Cohen. Scribner is publishing the book March 30. The first book of a planned series is a common sense guide for parents with newborns. It also follows Cohen’s experiences raising his own child, which in many ways defied much of what he learned in medical school and ultimately altered how he advises his patients.  Read more >
