Judy Moody is Getting a Movie Deal!

According to Variety, Relativity has acquired rights to "Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer."

Directed by John Schultz ("Aliens in the Attic"), "Judy" stars Aussie thesp Jordana Beatty ("Superman Returns") as the titular Judy Moody alongside Heather Graham as her aunt as the third-grader sets out to have the most thrilling summer of her life.

The script, penned by Kathy Waugh and Megan McDonald, is based on the characters in McDonald's nine-title children's book series, published by Candlewick Press with over 13 million copies in print in 23 languages.-Variety

 I haven't read this Judy Moody book yet, but i think i will have to now!  I did read Judy Moody was in a Mood (review) and i liked it a lot.  Here's a picture of Jordana Beatty:

I think she looks like a good Judy.  What do you think?  Are you going to go see it?

Woo Hoo! My 6 year old daughter loves Judy Moody, though she hasn't read this particular one.

Thanks for passing this info along! It's very exciting.
