Lionsgate today announced that it has acquired from Mandate Pictures the U.S. distribution rights to LOL, a coming-of-age comedy starring Miley Cyrus, Demi Moore and Ashley Greene.

Lisa Azuelos wrote and directed the film, an American version of her 2008 French box office hit LOL (Laughing Out Loud). The producers are Academy Award nominees Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher of Double Feature Films and Tish Cyrus. Executive producers are Mandate President Nathan Kahane, Lisa Azuelos, Romain Le Grand and Jerome Seydoux, with Double Feature Films' Taylor Latham, Mandate's Nicole Brown and Kelli Konop, and Jim Powers co-producing.

In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes and Facebook, Lola (Miley Cyrus) and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola's mom, Anne (Demi Moore), "accidentally" reads her teenage daughter's racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is an authentic coming-of-age story that perfectly captures today's zeitgeist.
