Miley Cyrus comedy going to Lionsgate
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So one of the Ls in “LOL” stands for Lionsgate?
It does now that the studio has acquired the rights to the Miley Cyrus comedy, an Americanized remake of the 2008 French film of the same name. Writer-director Lisa Azuelos returns to the helm to run Cyrus and co-stars Ashley Greene, Thomas Jane, Gina Gershon and Demi Moore through a coming-of-age story set in our digitized world.
The Hollywood Reporter states that “LOL” was produced by Mandate Pictures, which Lionsgate owns. The company also produced “Juno” and “Whip It,” which makes us wonder if Azuelos’ material is close in tone to those two pictures.
“LOL” doesn’t have a 2011 release date yet.
