Sweet Valley High

valleyhigh.jpgOne of my favorite series from my youth is back! Diablo Cody, the screenwriter behind the teen films Juno and the recent slasher film Jennifer's Body has been hired to adapt Francine Pascal's Sweet Valley High series for the big screen. The series began being published in the early 80's and contained 152 books, a tv series, and even a board game (which I, ahem, still have). Cody says that the film will be set in the 1980's, just like the original novels, claiming that she "[doesn't] feel like brokering some deal with T-Mobile to give Enid a Sidekick." Given that EVERY teen show/movie these days seems to be centered around technology, I'm interested in seeing a throw-back in which girls can't take camera-phone pics of each other's every move and can't communicate by constant texting. I think that people used to pass notes to each other...? :)
