‘Blonde’ Helmer To Play By “Camp Rules”

Scribe Kirsten Smith (“Legally Blonde,” “The Ugly Truth”) will make her directorial debut on the comedy “Camp Rules” for Paramount Pictures says Variety.

Based on Jordan Roter’s young adult novel, the story chronicles the exploits of 16-year-old Penny Moore during her eight-week stint at a girl’s camp in Maine.

Smith will pen the screenplay with journalist/novelist Deanna Kizis, taking over from author Roter who penned a previous adaptation. Jason Blum, Tracy Underwood, Tom Pollack, Jeff Clifford and Ali Bell are producing.
