In their quest to create a version of Pi that's more of a date movie, Disney has bought a pitch for The Girlfriend Equation, a film to be based on a This American Life story about an MIT grad student's attempts to use equations to locate and seduce a mathematically ideal partner. TAL's beloved, nasally host, Ira Glass, will executive produce, while Vince DiMeglio and Tim Rasmussen--who previously collaborated on Marmaduke and License to Wed--have been hired to script. Here's a hint to speed along the writing process, guys: the nerdy girl that's helping the guy with the equation that will get him the campus babe? It turns out he's supposed to be with HER! Especially because she's really hot once she takes her glasses off.
