Fans of the YA bestseller The Duff rejoice! Today CBS Films released the first trailer to their adaptation of the Kody Keplinger novel that centers on high school senior Bianca (Mae Whitman), who discovers that she is the designated ugly fat friend (hence the DUFF) in her group of girlfriends. She enlists jock Wesley (Robbie Amell) to help her reinvent herself in exchange for helping him with school.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a teen movie that has the chops to become a classic like The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Can’t Buy Me Love, Heathers, Some Kind of Wonderful, and Say Anything, but The Duff certainly looks promising. The film is directed by Ari Sandel and also stars Allison Janney, Ken Jeong, Bella Thorne, Skyler Samuels, and Bianca Santos.
Watch the trailer now:
The Duff is set to be released February 20, 2015.
