Teen Idol and Every Boy's Got One: According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer-producer Joan Singleton, who produced the upcoming "Because Winn-Dixie" for 20th Century Fox, has optioned film rights to two Meg Cabot novels: "Teen Idol" and "Every Boy's Got One."
Singleton plans to adapt both books for the big screen and produce along with her husband, Ralph Singleton.
"Idol," published by HarperCollins, centers on high school junior Jenny Greenley, who, as the school newspaper's advice columnist, is good at solving other people's problems. However, a swirl of problems start happening around her when 19-year-old screen sensation Luke Striker comes to Jenny's small town to research a role.
"Every Boy's Got One," from publisher Avon, centers on cartoonist Jane Harris, whose best friend is eloping to Italy with her longtime boyfriend. Jane is asked to be the bridesmaid and agrees so that she can butt heads with the best man. However, they are forced to put their differences aside when the wedding plans hit a major snag.
