Miramax has bought and greenlit the teen comedy spec “She’s All That” for producers Peter Abrams and Robert Levy’s Tapestry Films, according to sources.
The script, described as ” ‘Pygmalion’ in high school,” is the first sale for scripter Lee Fleming. The deal is said to be worth mid-six figures.
While no director has been named, the filmmakers plan to shoot early next year.
Based on an idea by Tapestry veep Jennifer Gibgot, “She’s All That” is about a teen stud who bets a pal he can turn the high school’s geekiest female student into the next prom queen — and then falls in love with her.
Abrams and Levy are producing; Gibgot will co-produce along with Rich Hull.
Miramax veeps Jill Messick and Meryl Poster brought the project to the company.
L.A.-based production company Tapestry is now producing the Jim Abrahams-helmed Touchstone pic “Jane Austen’s Mafia.” Previous credits include “A Kid in King Arthur’s Court” and “Point Break.”
Miramax reps could not be reached for comment.
