Catherine Hardwicke To Direct Non Conformist Teen Drama ‘Stargirl’ | Film News

 

Catherine Hardwicke is set to direct a film adaption of the critically acclaimed novel Stargirl, not to be mistaken for DC’s superhero, written by Jerry Spinelli. The film follows the story of an enigmatically eccentric teenage girl named Susan, whose reluctance to follow conventions and norms initially yields her great popularity, which transitions into total social rejection. Spinelli’s novel was heavily praised for its allegorical meanings about non-conformity and the writer received several accolades for it.

 

Variety says that Hardwicke was quick to sign up after reading Kristin Hahn’s screenplay adaption and the writer was said to be delighted with the director choice: “I can’t imagine anyone more uniquely equipped to bring this story to life than Catherine”, she said. Hardwicke is highly renowned for her coming-of-age dramas, which include TwilightRed Riding Hood and Thirteen. She has also just finished production on the Drew Barrymore romantic comedy Miss You Already. Stargirl will be produced by Hahn, Gotham Group and BCDF Pictures. Production is set to start in Autumn this year.

Currently studying Film Theory at the University of South Wales, I have strong aspirations of obtaining a career in entertainment journalism in the near future. I predominantly write about Film and TV, but also have interests in Radio, Sports and the ever-present Internet. Although I believe journalism is my true calling, I also wish to fit screenwriting in somewhere down my career line – I guess I just love writing in general! Once my Degree is completed, I plan on studying a Master’s in Creative Writing to extend my writing abilities and strengthen my prospects.
