EXCLUSIVE: The writer-director’s adaptation of Stephen Elliott’s memoir The Adderall Diaries, which James Franco acquired back in 2010 and is starring in and producing, is fresh out of the Sundance Institute’s Directors and Screenwriters Labs. Now Pamela Romanowsky has been signed by WME in all areas and the agency will rep the project. Adderall follows a blocked writer who reports on the trial of Hans Reiser, a computer programmer charged with killing the wife he met through a Russian dating service. Fueled by Adderall, a methamphetamine prescribed to help ADHD sufferers, his stream of consciousness prose veers into subjects that include his cruel father, Paris Hilton, and S&M. Romanowsky attended NYU’s Graduate Film Program and her short Gravity premiered at Slamdance and she has won awards from National Board of Review and the Wasserman/King Foundation. Her latest director effort is TAR, a multi-helmed pic based on the life and poetry of CK Williams for which she also wrote a segment. It premiered this year at the Rome International Film Festival.
