'The Maintenance Man' Is Coming to the Big Screen

Michael Baisden's bestseller gets the film adaptation treatment.

Screen Gems now owns the rights to Michael Baisden's bestselling novel The Maintenance Man. According to Variety, the book revolves around a male prostitute having an existential crisis.

Baisden, who also happens to be a syndicated radio show host, will write the script. His book hit the bestseller list in 1999, and touched on the subjects of love, lust, and lies. The narrative followed a Julliard grad that ditched his music aspirations for work as a gigolo. He soon makes a fortune as the hired companion of wealthy married women.

The book has already been adapted into a stage play, and in 2004 there was a straight-to-DVD film based on the published work. There is no word on when the film will start shooting.
