This is seriously exciting news! We LOVED that book!
For those of you who weren't emotionally tortured 12 year olds, the novel, written by Stephen Chbosky (who also is writing and directing the film) chronicles a young boy's awkward teenage years, experimentation with drugs and sexuality in a series of letters he's writing to an unknown recipient!
We're being a little sassy, but in all seriousness, it's a wonderful, heartwrenching story that deserves a good adaptation!
No news on who's playing who, but we imagine Lerman will play the protagonist Charlie and Watson will take on Sam, his friend and love interest!
We think they'll be PERFECT! We can't wait to hear more details!
