    Avril Lavigne song to be made into movie

    Lavigne's 'Boi' to Roll on Film

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Pop singer Avril Lavigne (news)'s hit single "Sk8er Boi" is heading to the big screen.

    Paramount Pictures has optioned the song and hired "ER" writer/producer David Zabel to adapt its words into a feature film to be produced by studio- based MTV Films and Alphaville.

    The song, which captures the divide between cliques and cultures, is about a teenage girl who rejects a skater boy with a crush on her because her friends didn't approve of him -- even though she secretly likes him. Years later, he becomes a famous rock star and she is left with regrets.

    Because the song has become an anthem for teenagers, the film will be true to spirit of the song. Also titled "Sk8er Boi," the feature will focus on the two teens from different backgrounds and the social constraints in which they find themselves.

    The project, though not a musical, will have a heavy musical component in the style of the studio's previous hits "Flashdance," "Footloose" and "Save the Last Dance."

    Scott Spock, Lauren Christy and Graham Edwards -- the writing-production team collectively known as the Matrix who co-wrote with Lavigne and produced "Sk8er Boi," among other hits, on Lavigne's album "Let Go" -- will act as consultants on the screenplay. They also will create an event album with new original songs around the movie and executive produce the soundtrack.

    Well, it's a catchy song. But a movie?

    The way I see it, this movie could good (Flashdance and Save the last dance were pretty good), or a complete flop.

    You are KIDDING me! [Elaine shove here]

    Stupid. Very stupid. Although, It's sure to be better than Crossroads
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Ohh...NO!! I hate Avril, and I hate the idea that any movie is based off of one of her songs. I mean, the concept is okay, but I bet the movie will be bad.

    Crossroads . And I watched it! I can't believe I'm admitting to watching it.

    Wonder who would act in it?

    I hate Avril and plan on giving her a beat down if I ever meet her. Anyone who thinks they are all that by calling their song "Sk8tr Boi" needs to be taught a lesson.

    I'm disappointed they are making a movie out of this, but I cannot say I'm surprised. :rolleyes
    Who shot who in the what now?
