Bill O’Reilly’s “Those Who Trespass” Needs to be a Lifetime Movie

So it seems the whole Bill O’Reilly thing is dying down but to tell you the truth I’d like it to heat up again.  One way to do it would be to resurrect a novel that O’Reilly himself wrote in 1998 which almost mirrors the situation he found himself in this year.    For those of you not familiar:

Those Who Trespass: A Novel of Television and Murder focuses on the revenge a television journalist exacts on network staff after disputes very similar to O’Reilly’s real tensions with CBS (such as one involving Falklands War footage). The revenge takes the form of a series of graphically described murders. The novel was first published in 1998 by a small publishing house, and rereleased in 2004 by Broadway Books as a trade paperback.

On July 13, 2011, in O’Reilly’s “Backstage Conversation” video section of the website, he responded to a viewer who asked “Does Mel Gibson still own the rights to Those who Trespass?” O’Reilly replied, “He does not. We had two cycles with Mr. Gibson’s production company–this was before he got into all the trouble–and now I own it again. So hopefully someone will step up.

I mean, seriously.  You can’t make this stuff up.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if O’Reilly was some sick genius author who decided that he would eventually make his novel turn into a real life situation and he was doing all of this to concoct one of the greatest Hollywood scripts ever?  OK, we know this isn’t the case and that O’Reilly is just a sick, twisted, sorry individual which is exactly why his book needs a movie home at Lifetime.  I pray that an over the top drama based on his book hits that network in the next year if it’s not in the works already.

Nothing would satisfy me more than O’Reilly’s being dramatized on a primarily women’s oriented network.
