Gurinder Chadha is in talks to direct the teen comedy, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging for Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures International.

Chadha is also co-writing the screenplay with Paul Meyeda Berges; the film is based on Louise Rennison's 1999 best-selling young-adult novel. The Hollywood Reporter says it centers on a 16-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing.

Shooting on Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging is scheduled to begin April 15th.
