Fun Movie News. #114:

Paul Feig's Star Girl.

UPDATE: Feig stops by the Freaks and Geeks board to clarify:

They were a little off in their description of the film when they say that the hero falls for an "eccentric beauty." Just wanted to clarify that this isn't one of those "she's an ugly duckling until she takes off her glasses and lets down her hair, revealing that she's actually the hottest girl in the school" fiascos that Hollywood always seems to make. The girl of the title, "Stargirl," is actually a very ordinary looking girl who is so different from the rest of the students that people don't even know how to deal with her. It's less a story about a kooky girl who comes in and changes people's lives as much as it is a kooky girl who becomes the most unpopular girl in school and how our hero's relationship with her turns his life upsidedown.

Well, that is until the studio forces me to cast some super model in the role and I end up putting glasses on her and sticking her hair in a bun. But it's a nice little book and a story I'm dying to tell.

Just wanted to clear that up.
