Taylor Momsen (TV’s “Gossip Girl”) and Jacob Zachar (TV’s “Greek”) are in talks for the feature film version of “Cavegirl” for The U.K. Film Council and Carnaby International says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the 1980s BBC series, the $6 million action comedy is billed as being a film about teenage problems in a stone age world. Thora Birch also stars.
Danny Peacock, who wrote and directed two seasons of the original show, will make his big-screen directorial debut on the project. The filmmakers are in negotiations with “Bee Gees” Robin and Barry Gibb to write the music.
Filming kicks off in South Africa in April. Andy Bell and Tim Woolford will produce.
