Caviar and Cold Iron Pictures announced today that they will finance and produce the dramatic coming-of-age feature The Diary of a Teenage Girl, starring Bel Powley, Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Bridesmaids) and Alexander Skarsgard (Melancholia, "True Blood"). First time director, Marielle Heller will direct from her own screenplay.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl is based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel of the same name written by Phoebe Gloeckner and tells the story of a brutally honest teenage artist living in San Francisco in the '70s as she attempts to navigate her way through an affair with her motherís boyfriend. The film will shoot in San Francisco.

Heller went through both the Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Labs with The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Since founded in 1981, the Sundance Feature Film Program has supported an impressive list of award-winning and ground-breaking films, including most recently, the critically successful Fruitvale Station.

British actress Powley, who will play the title character, makes her American film debut in the feature. Powley best known for her breakout role in the Royal Court Theatre's West End production of "Tusk Tusk," for which she was nominated for the Evening Standard Best Newcomer Award, Tom Stoppard's "Arcardia" on Broadway, and the recent production of "Jumpt," Royal Court Theatre and West End.

Bert Hamelinck and Madeline Samit of Caviar will produce along with Miranda Bailey of Cold Iron and Anne Carey of Archer Gray. Amanda Marshall of Cold Iron and Michael Sagol of Caviar will serve as executive producers along with Jorma Taccone.
