Gurinder Chadha Is Into Snogging

Gurinder Chadha (“Bend It Like Beckham”, “Bride and Prejudice”) is in negotiations to direct the comedy “Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging” for Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures International reports the trades.

Based on Louise Rennison’s 1999 young adult novel, the story centers on a 16-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing.

Chadha and “Beckham” scribe Paul Mayeda Berges are penning the screenplay. Shooting is scheduled to begin April 15th.
