One of our favorite characters from a cherished, children's "chapter" book series — Ramona Quimby — is getting the Hollywood treatment and is being adapted for the big screen. We don't really know how to feel about this, because we're sure they're gonna "update" Ramona, thus making her suck. Also, the people attached to write and direct are the people responsible for Ella Enchanted (one of those Anne Hathaway princess movies) and Aquamarine. [Variety]
As long as she's got a bowl cut and an egg gets broken on her head, I'm all for it. I freaked when they made my favorite childhood book (Matilda, by Roald Dahl) into a movie and it turned out to be adorable so I'll give this a shot. Seeing that picture felt so good, made me feel younger than my 25 years for about 4 seconds!
