TORONTO (AP) - The antics of embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford could soon be coming to a TV or movie screen.

Toronto-based indie film and TV production company Blue Ice Pictures said Monday it has acquired the film and television rights to the new book "Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story."

Published by Penguin Canada, it's written by Toronto Star reporter Robyn Doolittle, one of three journalists who viewed a video that appeared to show Ford smoking crack cocaine.

Ford last year made international headlines for admitted to having smoked crack while in a drunken stupor and also threatening "murder" in a viral video. He still draws attention for erratic behavior, but has resisted pressure to step down and is seeking re-election.

Ford's bizarre behavior made him a favorite of late-night comedians.
