Amanda Seyfried and McG are teaming up for The Girl Who Conned the Ivy League, based upon a Rolling Stone article by Sabrina Rudin Erdely.
According to /Film, the plot goes as follows:
Esther Reed steals a series of identities, eventually becoming Brooke Henson and getting admitted to Columbia University under false pretenses, not to mention a false identity. Detectives looking for the real Brooke Henson, who was a missing person, track the fake Brooke down but before they can nab her, she hits the road and vanishes. At this point, police detective Jon Campbell takes on the hunt as easily his biggest case to date, and the chase is on.
Production Weekly adds that the film is based on a pitch by Lorene Scafaria.
No production date has been set.
