In April 2015, Guy’s Rolling Stone article The Dukes of Oxy was optioned by New Line/Warner Brothers, with Mike De Luca (The Social Network, Moneyball) attached to produce and Ansel Elgort (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) to star. In addition, Guy’s book Octopus is with HBO, to be written and directed by Peter Gould (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Too Big to Fail).
