In case you haven’t heard, the Juno and Young Adult screenwriter’s next foray into adolescence will be a big-screen adaptation of Francine Pascal’s middle school-staple Sweet Valley High novels. But that’s not all — last night at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Cody told MTV News that the movie will be a musical. ‘There’s original songs being written for it right now, which is the most exciting development,’ she said. ‘They’re amazing.
