After budget and script issues, producer Stephen Scheffer tells THR he’s now in talks with several studios to bring the controversial Fox host’s 2008 book to the big screen.

Glenn Beck has yet to conquer the movie business.

His 2008 book The Christmas Sweater, based on his life, became the basis for a public event in which he told his stories.

He sold film rights to producer Stephen Scheffer, a former top HBO executive, and Sony picked up the project in 2009 as a possible direct-to-video movie to be shot on a relatively low budget (less than $8 million).

But there were budget and script issues, and after a year it went into turnaround.

Beck's politics apparently weren't an issue, and Scheffer says he's now talking with several studios about making the movie.
