Diablo Cody Working on Sweet Valley High Movie, Maybe Playboy Biopic?

Diablo Cody apparently can write almost anything. The Oscar-winning writer of Juno (2007) also penned the recently released Jennifer's Body, and the Emmy-nominated The United States of Tara. Sure, Jennifer has gotten lackluster reviews and box office earnings, but nonetheless, Cody's range seems pretty astounding.

Cody seems determined to avoid being pigeonholed. She is currently working on the script for a feature film adaptation of the popular '80s teen book series Sweet Valley High. Universal is reportedly in talks to buy the rights. Plus, according to Hugh Hefner's Twitter page, the pair had lunch last Thursday to discuss her writing the Brian Grazer biopic about Playboy.
