Richard Johnson - Page Sis - May 23, 2008 -- "MODEL: The Ugly Business of Beautiful Women" may finally be turned into a movie. The book by Michael Gross has been in print for 13 years and sold almost a half million copies. But past attempts to adapt it for the screen - first by Dawn Steel, then Joel Schumacher - involved fictionalizing the story. Producers J.T. Allen and Jon Katzman of KDX Productions in LA, who just optioned "Model," plan a 10-part documentary.
