Star Girl: According to Variety, Paramount and Nickelodeon Films are putting Freaks And Geeks creator Paul Feig back into high-school mode.
Feig has signed to rewrite and direct Star Girl, an adaptation of the bestselling young adult novel by Jerry Spinelli.
The book tells the story of 16-year-old Leo Borlock's first love -- an eccentric beauty. Peer pressure forces him to choose whether or not to stay with the crowd and shun a girl he loves.
"I fell in love with the theme of what happens if you meet your soulmate in high school, before you are ready, and it runs smack into the rules of teen popularity and acceptance," Feig said.
