Amy Poehler is set to direct an adaption of Jennifer Mathieu’s novel Moxie.
Moxie tells the story of a 16-year-old girl from a small town who is inspired by her mother’s past as part of the underground punk movement Riot Grrrl, and uses it as the catalyst to start a feminist revolution at her high school.
Poehler will produce through her Paper Kite banner along with Veep’s Morgan Sackett and Paper Kite development director Kim Lessing. Sackett and Poehler worked together on Wine Country and Parks and Rec. Production will begin this fall.
