It's like cute overload over here with this Lunch Lady news. Amy Poehler is attached to star in a film adaptation of a children's graphic novel series, Lunch Lady. The books focus on "a mild-mannered school cafeteria server who secretly dishes out helpings of justice as she and her assistant investigate wrongdoings. The books also feature three kids who try to figure out her double life."
Adorable. Who's better for this kind of thing? Kristen Chenoweth is great with fun kids' stuff, but I like that, for this particular role, it maybe calls for someone a little scrappier and Amy Poehler is a perfect choice. I'm not even the target audience for this and I don't have any kids, but I'm excited to see it because Poehler never fails to entertain.
