According to Variety, Columbia Pictures has bought pitch Big Man on Campus, to be written by Coyote Ugly scribe Gina Wendkos and produced by Hal Lieberman under his first-look deal at the studio.

The project percolated after Lieberman invited Wendkos for a meeting to sound out movie ideas. Wendkos most recently scripted The Perfect Man and The Princess Diaries.

"This is a comedy that takes place in a high school where beauty and brains duke it out, and what happens when the perception of popular changes and the power structure crumbles," Wendkos said.
