Liarmouth: John Waters to direct and write an adaptation of his “craziest” novel

John Watersthe mad genius behind movies like Hair spray, Cry Baby, Serial motherand Peckercomes back behind the camera for Liarmouth, an adaptation of his “craziest” novel. Waters collaborates with Village Roadshow pictures for the first time he has directed since the 2004s A dirty shame.

“Liarmouth is the craziest thing I’ve written in a while, so perhaps it’s fitting that my novel was shocking enough to start the engine of my film career.” Waters said of his novel Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance. “Excited to be back in the movie business, hopefully spreading demented joy to adventurous moviegoers around the world.”

The description of Waters’ Liarmouth novel says the book is a “hilariously dirty tale of sex, crime and family dysfunction.” Here’s the official synopsis via Amazon:

Marsha Sprinkle: Suitcase Thief. Con man. Master of Disguise. Dogs and children hate her. Her own family wants her dead. She’s smart, she’s desperate, she’s disturbed, and she’s on the run with a big chip on her shoulder. They call her Liarmouth – until an insane man forces her to tell the truth.

Other films directed by Waters include Eat your makeup, More lunatics, Pink flamingos, Women’s issuesand Cecil B. Dement, to name a few. Waters is known for his flamboyant persona, wild imagination and unique approach to cinema. He is one of Hollywood’s most respected filmmakers, often flaunting the rules of convention and breaking all the rules. Whose Liarmouth is half as outrageous as his other tales of twisted romance, fans will be in for a treat.
