Scrabble and love

The guy who directed the teenspoitation flick 40 Days and 40 Nights is apparently in negotiations to direct a movie called Your Word Against Mine — a romantic comedy set in the world of Scrabble championships.

“Word” follows a young man trying to become national Scrabble champion. But his plans are put in jeopardy when he meets an equally competitive female player.

I am weirdly looking forward to this.

(Thanks to Plastic for this one!)
