Wild Child: According to The Hollywood Reporter, In a deal worth mid- to high-six figures, Working Title Films has pre-emptively picked up the spec script Wild Child from writer Lucy Dahl.

The female-driven teen comedy tells the tale of a Malibu bad girl who is sent to a British boarding school.

Dahl, who went to an English boarding school, is continuing in the family business by writing for film as she is the daughter of Roald Dahl, famous for such children's books as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "James and the Giant Peach."

Her mother is Patricia Neal, who won an Oscar for 1963's Hud.
