Jessica Rothe Is The New “Valley Girl”

MGM has set “La La Land” actress Jessica Rothe to play the lead role in its musical remake of the classic 1983 comedy “Valley Girl”.

Martha Coolidge helmed the original which starred Deborah Foreman as a ‘valley girl’ who fell in love with a punk rocker (Nicolas Cage). The film went on to make $17 million at the box-office, that’s over fifty times its tiny budget.

Rachel Lee Goldenberg directs the new take from a script by Amy Talkington, while Matt Smith will produce.
