FoxNews.com columnist Roger Friedman reports that newly out talk-show host Rosie O'Donnell's show business career will definitely continue after she tapes her last program on May 23. O'Donnell has a deal to write and direct a film version of the novel America, by E.R. Frank, about a teenage boy set adrift from foster care who winds up in a mental hospital. "I've got so many ways that I want to express myself creatively," says O'Donnell. "My agent showed the script to Showtime, and they said yes in less than a day." Production on the film begins in the fall.
