Cody to Write and Produce Sweet Valley High


Diablo Cody will write and produce an adaptation of the “Sweet Valley High” book series for Universal, reports Variety. Mason Novick, Adam Siegel and Marc Platt are also producing.

The studio is in talks to acquire the film rights to the book series created by Francine Pascal and published by Random House.

The “Sweet Valley” novels followed the lives of identical twins with dissimilar personalities — the sensitive and practical Elizabeth and the flighty and boy-crazy Jessica — in the fictional town of Sweet Valley.
