Netflix is ramping up on their book to screen adaptations!
It was announced on Monday (December 21) that the streaming service is bringing Soman Chainani‘s “The School For Good And Evil” to the screen, according to Deadline.
HSMTMTS actress Sofia Wylie and Broadway’s Beetlejuice star Sophia Anne Caruso are set to star alongside each other in the feature, being directed by Paul Feig.
“It’s official and I can’t be more excited to bring Agatha to life!!! 😘,” Sofia wrote on Twitter with the news.
The School For Good And Evil “follows best friends Sophie and Agatha who discover where fairytale legacies go to school: the School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. With her princess ambitions, Sophie knows she’ll be picked for the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella and Snow White.
Meanwhile, Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and wicked cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil. Yet soon the girls find their fortunes reversed: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, Agatha into the School for Good. But what if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are? Their friendship will be put to the test in this thrilling and comedic story where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.”
