One fan of the book is the daughter of Sarah Siegel-Magness and Gary Magness, the producers of Precious. The family enjoys the books so much that their Smokewood Entertainment production company is taking on Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer as their next project.
In a press release from Judy Moody publisher Candlewick, Siegel-Magness said, “Our company, Smokewood Entertainment, intends to make films with a positive message for a variety of audiences, and the adventures of independent Judy and her family and friends are a perfect vehicle for that.”
The movie will come out in 2011. In an interview with Daily Variety, director John Schultz added that the movie will appeal to girls and boys and engage adults.
