Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) is in talks to direct the comedy Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging for Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures International.

The Hollywood Reporter says Lynda Obst is producing the film, based on Louise Rennison’s 1999 best-selling young-adult novel.

The story centers on a 16-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing.

Chadha and “Beckham” writer Paul Mayeda Berges are penning the screenplay. Shooting is scheduled to begin April 15.
