HBO Films Takes Good Care of "American Girl"

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl picture


HBO Films has picked up rights to "American Girl" for its Picturehouse Entertainment to develop.

The "American Girl" finally finds a new home to settle in. Recently abandoned by Walden Media which originally was in charge to handle financial matters, the project now is set to be developed under HBO Films following its acquisition to the film's rights for Picturehouse Entertainment, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

Based on a popular line of historically accurate dolls and books for girls, the flick will present the story of one of the dolls, Kit Kittredge, and a nine-year-old girl who has to deal with hardships during the Great Depression. Apart from backing it up, HBO has also signed with the retailer to create and distribute feature films, specials and documentaries based on the girls.

Production on the movie is scheduled to begin this summer with Ann Peacock penning the script. Meanwhile, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Marisa Yeres, and Stephanie Langhoff will produce through Goldsmith-Thomas Productions in association with Julia Roberts' Red Om Films.

UPDATE 05/12/2007: Movie title changed from "American Girl" to "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery".
