Hey, Orange You Going to See Tanning Mom’s Movie?

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil is getting her own movie!

“Tanning Mom” is not leaving the (probably UV-heavy) spotlight anytime soon.

There’s no word who is producing it, how it’s being funded, or where it will be distributed, but In Touch Weekly reveals in a new interview with Patricia Krentcil, the elfin mother of five with some majorly artificial pigmentation, that she’s planning to star in a movie based on her life. Specifically, it will focus on the ordeal she suffered during 2012, when she was accused of bringing her six-year-old daughter Anna with her into a tanning booth.

On Feb. 26 a grand jury ruled that it would not indict Krentcil on charges of child endangerment. Still, the copper-toned New Jersey native who never uses Coppertone tells In Touch, “What they did to me was not right.” She’ll be making the movie—“It’s going to portray everything that’s happened”—in order to raise money to pay her legal bills and help fund the education of her children. Krentcil also says she’s been getting modeling offers.

Obviously, the movie will be a color-splashed extravaganza—I’d advise going with old-school three-strip Technicolor to capture Krentcil’s unnatural hue—but otherwise details about the project are sparse. Personally, I’d like to think that Joel Schumacher will helm and, like Phone Booth, stage the movie entirely inside a closed tanning bed for maximum claustrophobia.

Here’s hoping U.S. Representative John Boehner makes his screen debut as Tanning Mom’s love interest.
