In January 1976, Texas Monthly announced that Larry McMurtry had signed a contract to write a screenplay for a film adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's roman à clef Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1971). Martin Scorsese and Oliver Stone each tried to get the film off the ground, but were unsuccessful and moved on. It was not until Terry Gilliam's 1998 movie that the book transferred to the big screen, to mixed reviews and financial disadvantage, though that rendering has since gone on to become something of a cult classic.
