Diablo Cody has revealed that a movie adaptation of Sweet Valley High is still in the works.

The Juno co-writer first signed up to write the screenplay for a movie version of Francine Pascal's series of novels back in 2009.

Cody explained that the project was still on, and that she hopes it will have a "nostalgic" value.

She told The Playlist: "[The movie] is moving forward. I need to talk to the producers and see how much I can say about it. It's closer to reality than ever but I can't freely talk about it.

"I want it to be wonderfully nostalgic," she added. "I want it to be to the '80s what American Graffiti was to the [early] '60s. I want it to be looking back on a really cool time and enjoying yourself and I want it to be glamorous and colorful and bubblegum and a feast for the senses. That's my plan."

The Sweet Valley series centres on identical twins with very different personalities. A TV series ran for 88 episodes between 1994 and 1997 on Fox and UPN.
