Diablo Cody Looks To Put Her Own Spin On ‘Sweet Valley High’
  |  @   |  

Universal Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the rights to make a feature-length movie based on the popular book series Sweet Valley High. If the deal works out smoothly, the studio already has Juno and Jennifer’s Body writer Diablo Cody in line to pen the adaption. Cody set the project in motion with Mason Novick, who together went looking for the rights and made their pitch to Universal. Cody and Novick would also be producing along with Marc Platt.

Cody has settled into a groove where high school kids are a prime element to her stories. Juno, Jennifer’s Body, and her Showtime series The United States of Tara all have characters who are dealing with that time in their lives, so this would certainly be a fitting project for her, though some may want to see her spread her wings and fly a little.

MP3 Deal: ‘Juno’ Soundtrack
  |  @   |  

Today’s MP3 deal of the day over at Amazon today is Juno – Music From The Motion Picture for only $3.99.

This soundtrack was a huge hit back in early 2008 after the film was released and made Kimya Dawson and The Moldy Peaches instant favorites. The soundtrack includes the breakout song from the film “Anyone Else But You” as performed by The Moldy Peaches as well as by the film’s stars Ellen Page and Michael Cera.

Along with the new tracks are some classics from Mott The Hoople, Buddy Holly, The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, a Carpenter’s tune covered by Sonic Youth, and more.

This album is a must-have for fans of the film; I highly recommended it in my review of the Juno soundtrack last year.
