“Precious” producers Sarah Siegel-Magness and Gary Magness are developing family film Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer, based on the popular children’s book series, says The Hollywood Reporter.
John Schultz (Aliens in the Attic) will direct from a script by Kathy Waugh and Megan McDonald, author of the books. Filming will start this August in Los Angeles.
Variety says “McDonald’s books chronicle the humorous adventures of third-grader Judy Moody. There are eight titles in the series, with more than 12 million copies in print. All are illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. A spin-off series features Judy Moody’s brother Stink.”
