Emma Roberts Is A Girl Gone Wild

Universal Pictures and Working Title have set Emma Roberts (“Nancy Drew,” TV’s “Unfabulous”) to star in “Wild Child,” a Nick Moore-directed comedy that will begin production this summer reports Variety.

Scripted by Lucy Dahl, the comedy casts Roberts as a spoiled Malibu princess whose penchant for wildness drives her father to send her to a strict, all-girls English boarding school.

The story was informed by the experiences of the screenwriter, who’s the daughter of author Roald Dahl and a boarding school alumna.
