Olivia Wilde Will Direct a New Teen Comedy Film Starring Beanie Feldstein

According to Brit + Co, Olivia Wilde will be directing a new teen comedy called Booksmart, which will star Beanie Feldstein as well as KAITLYN DEVER.

Booksmart will tell the story of two best friends and academic overachievers who fear they wasted their high school years missing out on the fun of their youth. The pair decided to make up for all four years in one single evening.

Wilde first broke the news on Instagram, posting a photo of her director's chair and stating "SOOOO.... On this #femalefilmmakerfriday I'm BEYOND thrilled to announce that I'm directing a movie called Booksmart..."
