Judy Blume Is (Finally) Ready for Hollywood

Just in time for Women’s History Month, beloved author Judy Blume has finally greenlit Lionsgate to bring the classic girl’s rite of passage novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret to the big screen. Since its publication in 1970, the iconic author has consistently denied Hollywood the rights to a movie, but now that Blume is nearing her mid-80s (though you’d never know it), she has decided we’re worthy of what’s sure to be a cinematic masterpiece:

 

If you’re not familiar with the book (you must read before the premiere), it’s a coming-of-age YA story of a sixth-grade girl’s search for god as she navigates the shaky grounds of puberty. With a Christian mother and Jewish father who choose not to raise Margaret religiously, and a group of friends who seem to be growing up much faster than she, neither feat proves easy for our outspoken little protagonist. The book has been updated several times since it’s original release to cater to the modern reader, but the heart of it remains a timeless classic nonetheless. After all… we will probably, unfortunately, always get our periods.

 

 

The film will be directed by the same woman responsible for the epic Edge of Seventeen film, Kelly Fremon Craig, who is an avid fan of Blume’s and is quite confident that she is the best one for the job of taking Margaret to the screen. This is all we know for now, but check back soon for updates, like who will play the leading lady!
