Sweet Valley High film

Hands up how many summers you spent pawing over the saccharine, so-American-they-hurt Sweet Valley High books? How about the equally mesmerising TV series? How many of you still actually style reference the twin’s 90s preppy chic on a daily basis?

Well, we have some great news for you. According to Deadline, a Sweet Valley High film is on the horizon, and it’s in some surprisingly good hands.

Sweet Valley High - Elizabeth & Jessica

The writer behind Reese Witherspoon’s Legally Blonde and 10 Things I Hate About You will be in charge of bringing the series to the big screen with co-writer Harper Dill.

The book series was originally created by Francine Pascal and released in 1983. It followed the angsty lives of blonde-haired, blue-eyed twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield.

Sweet Valley High

The TV show starred Brittany and Cynthia Daniel as the twins. It was on air from 1994 to 1997.

As to who will play what, direct what and when we can see the finished Paramont Pictures project remains a mystery.

More on that when we have it.
