Dover, Penn.–the town made famous last year because of a court decision to overturn a school board requirement to teach intelligent design in the classroom–is about to get the Hollywood treatment. Variety reports that Paramount Studios is developing a film version of the trial, which will focus on the way the court’s decision divided the community. Ronald Harwood, the screewriter for the project, has said that he is using “Inherit the Wind,” the well-known play about the Scopes monkey trial, as his moral touchstone for the project.

No comment from either Paramount or Pat Robertson–who told the community last fall they had turned their back on God–as to whether or not Robertson has been offered a starring role.
