There are so many reasons to get excited for the upcoming movie adaptation of the Sweet Valley High books. Besides the fact Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, the main characters in the series will finally get their time on the silver screen Diablo Cody, who wrote Juno and Young Adult will be the one transforming the twin’s lives into a film. And now Diablo has revealed Sweet Valley High won’t just be a movie, it will be a movie musical.
The songs for the film are being written by real Broadway veterans, specifically Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, who wrote the songs for Next to Normal, a musical about mental illness that won the Tony for best original score.
Diablo is pretty confident fans won’t be disappointed by the final project saying, “…I’m very excited about ‘Sweet Valley High.’ It’s going to blow people’s minds.”
Now if they could just start working on a Babysitter’s Club musical all would be right with the world.
