Jerry Spinelli’s book Stargirl is in the works to be made into a film. Kristin Hahn has adapted the book to a screenplay. Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight, has signed on to direct.
“This is one of those stories and characters that stir your imagination and steal your heart and just stick with you forever. I am thrilled to have the chance to adapt this beloved novel and I can’t imagine anyone more uniquely equipped to bring this story to life than Catherine Hardwicke, a Stargirl in her own right,” Hahn said.
