Making Booksmart was the most fun we’ve ever had (and I saw Prince live so...) and now we are beyond grateful to be able to collaborate on a NEW project- one that was born on the set of Booksmart during a long series of night shoots when I only drank Coke and didn’t sleep for 5 days straight so you KNOW it’s a good idea! Here we gooooooooooo, @katierosesilberman 👯♀️❤️🎄
Wilde will direct the film from a screenplay by Silberman.
The duo previously worked on the Wilde's directorial debut Booksmart which released recently to universal acclaim.
They will also produce the new film.
