Massachusetts author Matthew Quick, whose novel “The Silver Linings Playbook” became David O. Russell’s Oscar hit, has another movie deal. His young adult novel
“Sorta Like a Rock Star,” which is about a teenager who lives in a bus, was picked up by Fox Searchlight, says Deadline.com, and will be produced by a number of heavy hitters including Wyck Godfrey (“Twilight”) and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein (“The Spiderwick Chronicles”). Those who saw or read “Silver Linings Playbook” know that Quick (inset) has roots in New Jersey and Philly, but he now lives with his writer-musician wife, Alicia Bessette, in Holden. Quick’s latest book is the young adult offering “Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.” The Weinstein Company optioned that book in April.
