Indignant Douche to Adapt Dirk Gently For BBC America

The man who went on a social media rampage about a Star Wars character being a "Mary Sue" will adapt Douglas Adams' novels for television.

Max Landis, a pretentious and entitled douche who was at the center of a controversy surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens character Rey last month has been tapped by BBC America to adapt Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency as an eight-episode television series. Landis, who used a post on 4chan as the basis for his protracted whine session about a female action movie protaganist being as skilled and powerful as dozens of male counterparts, soon became deeply offended by negative reactions to his tweets, resulting in an impressively even whinier YouTube video in response. After that, Landis noticed that filmmaker Lexi Alexander was tweeting about his comments in disgust, prompting Landis to make a newer, remarkably even more pathetic YouTube video asking her to unblock him and claiming that his past remarks were merely "gross" and "creepy" and certainly not "sexist."

Landis will executive produce the show alongside Ted Adams and David Ozer for IDW, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion, Alan Smithee and J.R. Bob Dobbs for Buttplug Productions, and Zainir Aminullah and Arvind Ethan David for Ideate Media, according to a report from CBR as well as one set of names that we incorrectly added, confident that nobody reading this is likely to know the difference. Landis has reportedly written over 75 screenplays, but the only one anyone has ever heard of is Chronicle. Landis is also the writer of DC Comics' Superman: American Alien, starring a character that is more powerful than anyone else on Earth and represents the ideal epitome of humanity, but who is most certainly not a Mary Sue. We'll keep you updated.
