SNL funny lady Amy Poehler is attached to star in “Lunch Lady” for Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of Jarrett Krosoczka’s children’s graphic novel series, the books center on a mild-mannered school cafeteria server who secretly dishes out helpings of justice as she and her assistant investigate wrongdoings.
The books also feature three kids who try to figure out her double life. The first two will be released this Summer.
Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern are writing the adaptation. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein is set to produce.
