Did Have you guys heard the news from Variety? The news about Diablo Cody signing on to direct a new adaptation of Sweet Valley High? As you might be aware, in addition to being a reluctant Sweet Valley expert, I’m also a film scholar of sorts (at least that’s what my bachelor’s degree says), but I’m putting aside any thoughts whatsoever on the pros and cons of such a project. Because since I heard this news, all I can think is, “I WANT IN!”
So, if you know Diablo Cody, or you are Diablo Cody, or you, like, have a friend of a friend of Diablo Cody, what I’m asking is simple: read The Diaries. Read them all, from beginning to end, and tell me you don’t want me on team ridiculous-teen-series-remake. I’ll be, like, an advisor.
Whatever, guys. I can dream!
P.S. Book 33 is coming this weekend. Promise.
P.P.S. We’re both from Chicago. Just sayin.
