Bella Thorne Is Ready To Take On ‘The DUFF’ — Get The Details On Her New Movie Role!

With Blended arriving in theatres on May 23, Amityville currently filming, and a few other movies in the pipeline, Bella Thorne has fearlessly begun making her transition from the small screen to the silver screen — and she isn’t stopping there!

The Wrap reports she’s nearing a deal to star in CBS Films’ teen comedy The DUFF opposite Parenthood‘s Mae Whitman. The film will be directed by Ari Sandel with a script by Josh A. Cagan, who adapted the 2010 young adult novel of the same title by Kody Keplinger, and is currently scheduled to shoot this summer in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to The Wrap’s exclusive, the film’s story follows “Bianca (Whitman), a high school senior whose world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s been labeled her social group’s DUFF (designated ugly fat friend), a sidekick of sorts to her prettier, more popular friends. She becomes determined to reinvent herself, enlisting her fellow DUFFs in a scheme to overthrow Madison, the school’s evil queen.”

Bella is in negotiations to play queen bee Madison, “who will do everything in her power to keep Bianca in her place as a DUFF.”

Bella took to Twitter today (May 1), to comment on the film, saying: “this story has a VERY positive message.” She even added a smiley face — we’re glad to see Bella’s as excited about this new project as we are!
