Not only is a movie of  Elizabeth Gilbert’s long-running betseller, Eat, Pray, Love, in the works, but also a movie of the parody.

The Hollywood Reporter announced yesterday that Warner Bros. has acquired rights to the forthcoming book Drink, Play, F@#K: A Jilted Man’s Quest for Nirvana in Dublin, Vegas and Bangkok.

The book is by Andrew Gottlieb, one of the creators of “Z Rock,” a satire to debut on IFC this month. It’s about a man who, seeking solace after his wife leaves him, drinks his way through Dublin, gambles through Las Vegas and, well, does the third activity in the title, through Bangkok. The book comes out in January.

Gilbert’s memoir is being developed by Paramount, starring Julia Roberts, It’s scheduled for release in 2010. No timeline was announced for the parody.
