Pop-rockER Avril Lavigne's hit song SK8ER BOI is to be made into a feature
Movie studio Paramount Pictures have optioned the anthemic track about a
snooty teenage girl who turns down a scruffy "sk8er boi" even though she likes
him - only to regret it in the future when he becomes a big rock star.
Paramount have hired ER writer and producer DAVID ZABEL to adapt the
lyrics of the tune into a full-length movie, which will be produced by MTV
FILMS and Alphaville.
The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER states, "Because the song has become an anthem for
teenagers, the film will be true to spirit of the song."
The project will not be a musical, but be in a similar style to the
studio's previous music-heavy hits, Flashdance, Footloose and SAVE THE LAST
