Blog to Movie

Anyone hosting with Blogger will have seen that the Baghdad Blog, "Dear Raed" is to be turned into a movie. I think this is definitely a first in the annals of blogging history. I've heard of blogs being turned into books before, but this is the first blog to movie to the best of my knowledge. Blogger.com has the link to the BBC story.
I remember when people first started noticing the blog just before the war and there were lots of artcles debating as to whether it was authentic or not and checking up on if the domains it passed through could have come from Iraq. The next thing the story was picked up by the mainstream media, first the BBC and then CNN, and "Dear Read" was travelling off to London and doing the rounds of interviews.
