What Happened to Gypsy's Book?

If you've ever wondered whatever happened to Catherine Share's book, we may have an answer. According to the US Copyright office (see record below) it was "optioned" to Paramount on April 9, 2008. Nothing seems to have happened since.

Why would Paramount purchase the rights, then squash it?
