Diablo Cody Set to Produce and Direct Sweet Valley High Movie

Diablo Cody to Attend Sweet Valley High

She's tackled pregnant teens, monster teens, and now Diablo Cody is going for . . . sweet teens? Yes, the dialogue diva herself has been tapped to produce and direct an adaptation of the Sweet Valley High books.

Even though the manufactured slang in Jennifer's Body started to get to me, I'm interested to see what Cody does with the beloved books. I read a lot of the series (and even watched the TV show), and I'm happy to see the books get revived in the pop-culture domain, even if it does involve Jessica telling Elizabeth that she's "Jello, so lime-green Jello."

UPDATE: Diablo herself replied to my tweet about made-up slang with "Thinking I might play it straight." There ya have it!

I used to love reading the Sweet Valley High books when I was in middle school! Man, they were good. Like <b>runningesq</b>, I felt very "scandalous" reading about their exploits and adventures. I liked the spin-off series too, like the Unicorn Club and the Super Thrillers. I remember one of the thriller books, A Killer on Board, freaked me out so much that I couldn't sleep.

I loved Sweet Valley High! I was a big fan of the show and the books. That's all I can think of when I see either of the doublemint twin sisters in movies or tv (The Game, Ruby, Wayans Brothers Films). I'm excited about this.

I Loved those books. I use to read them 24/7 when I was younger. I would stay up all night reading them, It got so bad that my mom would take my books away at night so I would go to sleep.

I'm scared. I hope she realizes that the made up slang is more annoying than anything else.

Hahah! The other day I was suddenly seized by a Sweet Valley insanity and started looking up the old book cover illustrations(like the one above) online and just lived out my youthful days of when I wished my world had been as awesome and beautiful as the Wakefields. I will deffinately see this movie!

I'd like to see them redo the BSC too. I didn't like the movie either, but I thought the TV show was a good adaptation of the books.I'd love to see a Sweet Valley High movie. Although honestly, the book plots that stayed with me were the thriller ones like the one where a girl was trying to SWF Elizabeth and the histories of the twins' relatives.

Actually I wouldn't mind them re-doing Baby Sitters Club while they're at it. I loved that series and felt very disappointed with the movie.

I read the Sweet Valley Twins series, but my mother never let me read the high school series, and for good reason. Hopefully Diablo will write a great script

I LOVED Sweet Valley High when I was younger! I read all the books (middle school, high school, college, family sagas, the revamped high school books, etc.) and even watched the show. It will be interesting to see what Diablo Cody brings to the table.
